  • You are the hole in my head
    You are the space in my bed
    You are the silence in between
    What I thought and what I said

    You are the night-time fear
    You are the morning when it's clear
    When it's over you'll start
    You're my head, you're my heart

    No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
    I never knew daylight could be so violent
    A revelation in the light of day
    You can't choose what stays and what fades away

    And I'd do anything to make you stay
    No light, no light
    (No light)
    Tell me what you want me to say

    Through the crowd I was crying out and
    In your place there were a thousand other faces
    I was disappearing in plain sight
    Heaven help me I need to make it right

    You want a revelation
    You want to get it right
    And it's a conversation
    I just can't have tonight

    You want a revelation
    Some kind of resolution
    You want a revelation

    No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
    I never knew daylight could be so violent
    A revelation in the light of day
    You can't choose what stays and what fades away

    And I'd do anything to, to make you stay
    No light, no light
    (No light)
    Tell me what you want me to say

    But would you leave me
    If I told you what I've done
    And would you leave me
    If I told you what I've become

    'Cause it's so easy
    To say it to a crowd
    But it's so hard, my love
    To say it to you out loud

    No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
    I never knew daylight could be so violent
    A revelation in the light of day
    You can't choose what stays and what fades away

    And I'd do anything to make you stay
    No light, no light
    Tell me what you want me to say

    You want a revelation
    You want to get it right
    But, it's a conversation
    I just can't have tonight

    You want a revelation
    Some kind of resolution
    You want a revelation

    You want a revelation
    You want to get it right
    But, it's a conversation
    I just can't have tonight
    You want a revelation
    Some kind of resolution
    Tell me what you want me to say Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
