Light House

  • When I couldn't see you for the wall
    What was that you said?
    What was that you said, before you called?

    And when I couldn't catch you for the fall
    What was that you said?
    What was that you said?

    "Nothing hurts this much"

    But I've seen the way
    That bodies lie
    And bodies tend to break

    And I've been away
    I've been away too long
    Too long to be afraid

    But you know
    What you know is better
    Is brighter

    And you know
    You know
    What you know is better
    Is brighter

    And this is where we were, when I showed you the dark
    Inside of me, in spite of me
    On a bench in the park
    You said to me:

    "This is not you
    This is not you..
    This is not you!"

    But I've seen the way
    That bodies lie
    And bodies tend to break

    And I've been away
    I've been away too long
    And I don't know a better place

    (Chorus)

    And this is where we are
    In your bed, in my arms
    Outside of me
    In spite of, 'we'

    I showed you the dark
    And you said to me:

    "You know
    What you know is better
    Is brighter"

    "And you know, you know
    What you know is better
    Is brighter" Writer/s: John Gerrit Welmers, Samuel Thompson Herring, William Cashion
