Torches

Album: It's Not Over…The Hits So Far (2016)
  • All the hate and lies around us
    Like an ember in the brush
    And can you picture a world without it?
    And turn it all to ash and dust

    We keep waiting on a day that never comes and never comes
    Too late is not a thing and we just gotta be stronger
    Oh, gotta be stronger

    Love is like a torch that's burning bright
    Carry it on, carry it on and you'll see
    Fire will shine a light on the darkest side
    Carry it on, carry it on
    'Cause we can never right all the wrongs
    So leave the past well enough alone
    And say

    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
    Take a look at what we started
    Oh, spreading kindness all around
    Don't you know it's so contagious, yeah
    Take a hit and pass it down

    We keep waiting on a day that never comes and never comes
    Too late is not a thing and we just gotta be strong

    Love is like a torch that's burning bright
    Carry it on, carry it on and you'll see
    Fire will shine a light on the darkest side
    Carry it on, carry it on
    'Cause we can never right all the wrongs
    So leave the past well enough alone
    Just say

    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
    Just say (oh oh, oh oh, oh oh)
    It's gonna be alright
    Yeah
    It's gonna be alright
    Yeah

    Love is like a torch that's burning bright
    Carry it on, carry it on and you'll see
    Fire will shine a light on the darkest side
    Carry it on, carry it on and say

    It's gonna be alright (oh oh)
    Yeah (oh oh)
    It's gonna be alright (oh oh)
    Yeah (oh oh)
    I said it's gonna be alright (oh oh)
    Yeah (oh oh)
    It's gonna be alright (oh oh)
    Yeah
