Where the Light Shines Through

Album: Where the Light Shines Through (2016)
  • When you're feeling like an astronaut
    Stuck on a planet even time forgot, and
    You're a version of yourself, but you're not the same
    You try to keep the wound camouflaged, and
    The stitches heal, but the years are lost, and
    Another bottle on the shelf can't numb the pain

    Why're you running from yourself now?
    You can't run away

    'Cause your scars shine like dark stars
    Yeah, your wounds are where the light shines through
    So let's go there, to that place where
    We sing these broken prayers where the light shines through--
    The wound is where the light shines through
    Yeah, the wound is where the light shines through

    Ain't we all just Abraham's son?
    Saint and sinner with the song and drum, and
    We're fallen on our knees, we all bleed the same
    And the only tattoos I have are scars
    I got your name written on my heart
    And the story that brought us here ain't the thing that changed, no

    I wanna see that light shining
    Brighter than the pain

    'Cause your scars shine like a dark star
    Yeah, your wounds are where the light shines through
    So let's go there, to that place where
    We sing these broken prayers where the light shines through
    The wound is where the light shines through

    Mama, ain't the blood just proof I'm human?
    Mama, ain't the wound just retribution?
    Well Mama, ain't the scar like a vision of grace?

    The wound is where the light shines through
    The wound is where the light finds you
    The wound is where the light shines through
    The wound is where the light finds you
    Your scars shine like dark stars
    Yeah, the wound is where the light shines through
    It's where the light shines through
    Yeah, yeah, it's where the light shines through
    Yeah, the only time to our heart, oh oh
    It's where the light shines through
    Where the light shines, where the light shines through
    Where the light shines though
    It's where the light shines through Writer/s: JONATHAN MARK FOREMAN, TIMOTHY DAVID FOREMAN
