  • [Verse 1]
    Everyone is running scared
    All terrified and unprepared
    For where we are and what we have in store
    You can turn your head away
    Or you can turn to guard and pray
    But either way, the writing's on the wall
    I hope, oh
    But either way, the writing's on the wall

    [Chorus]
    Bring your light, only bring your light
    Bring your light, only bring your light
    For the lost, for the lost in our time
    For the lost and an end to the night
    Bring your light, only bring your light

    [Verse 2]
    Every heart and every soul
    In every town around the world
    Don't we all deserve a little more
    And how we try to right the wrong
    We talk of love and moving on
    But every year is like the one before
    I hope, oh
    But every year's like the one before

    [Chorus]
    Bring your light, only bring your light
    Bring your light, only bring your light
    For the lost, for the lost in our time
    For the lost and an end to the night
    Bring your light, only bring your light

    [Bridge]
    So gather up, don't be afraid
    The future's ours and ours to make
    Never mind the writing on the wall
    Yeah, all together now, sing it loud
    The time is right to bring it now
    Don't we all deserve a little more

    [Chorus]
    Bring your light, only bring your light
    Bring your light, only bring your light
    For the lost, for the lost in our time
    For the lost and an end to the night
    Bring your light, only bring your light Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
