  • Tender is the light that shines on you
    Gentle is the morning made anew
    Delicate, the grace we've come into
    My love
    Wonder why you wish your life away
    Waiting for the perfect boat to take
    Waiting for the perfect wind to sail away
    Life's shining around you
    Don't miss a day
    If you're caught up in the chase
    You hold your happiness away from you
    Stop where you are
    Under fading stars
    This is the world we've made
    There is no better place, it's true
    Light a fire where you are
    Underneath a blanket of the cold
    Lying in the dark, your seed will grow
    Miracles just like a winter rose will be
    Give up all the things you can't control

    Still yourself and watch them come and go
    Wherever you are, you'll find you're home at last
    Everything glitters around you
    Don't miss a day
    The moon on the lake
    The smell in the air when it rains
    The people you can share with
    The feeling you get when you're almost there
    Stop where you are
    Under fading stars
    This is the world we've made
    There is no better place, it's true
    Light a fire where you are
    You can't stop the wild wind roaring
    But you can stop my poor heart from calling out
    Light a fire where you are
    Stop where you are
    Under fading stars
    This is the world we've made
    There is no better place, it's true
    Light a fire where you are Writer/s: CORINNE BAILEY RAE, STEVE CHRISANTHOU
