Just a Little Light Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well there ain't nobody safer than someone who doesn't care
And it isn't even lonely when no one's ever there
I had a lot of dreams once, but some of them came true
The honey's sometimes bitter when fortune falls on you

So you know I've been a soldier in the armies of the night
And I'll find the fatal error in what's otherwise all right
But here you're trembling like a sparrow, I will try with all my might
To give you just a little sweetness, just a little light

I have always heard that virtue ought to be its own reward
But it never comes so easy when you're living by the sword
This even harder to be heartless when you look at me that way
You're as mighty as the flower that will grow the stones away

Even though I've been a stranger, full of irony and spite
Holding little but contempt for, all things beautiful and bright
Something shines around you and it seems to my delight
To give me just a little sweetness, just a little light

It could be just another highway, coiled up in the night
You could be just another white tail baby, you're stranded on my brights
There's a tingling recognition like the sound of distant thunder
And I begin to wonder if the love I've driven under won't ignite

So you know I've been a soldier in the armies of the night
And I'll find the fatal error in what's otherwise all right
But something shines around you, that it seems to my delight
To give me just a little sweetness, just a little light

To give me just a little sweetness, just a little light
To give me, to give me just a little sweetness and just a little light
To give me, just a little sweet, just a little sweetness and just a little light
Just a little sweetness, just a little, just a little sweetness, just a little light
To give me just a little sweetness, just a little light
