Waking Light
by Beck

Album: Morning Phase (2014)
  • Waking light, it grew from the shadow
    Brace yourself to the morning low
    Night is gone, long way turning
    You've waited long enough to know

    When the memory leaves you
    Somewhere you can't make it home
    When the morning comes to meet you
    Lay me down in waking light

    No one sees you here, roots are all covered
    There's such a life to go and how much can you show?
    Day is gone on a landslide of rhythm
    It's in your lamplight burning low

    When the memory leaves you
    Somewhere you can't make it home
    When the morning comes to meet you
    Rest your eyes in waking light

    When the memory leaves you
    Somewhere you can't make it home
    When the morning comes to meet you
    Open your eyes with waking light Writer/s: BECK HANSEN
