The Light of Day Lyrics

by Brendan Benson

In that fleeting moment,
in between day and night,
well they come on all fours.
They bark and they bite.
Brothers bound by blood.
Lovers living in fear.
Treasure that they seek
is a pleasure buried here.
Candle light upon your face
and in darkness is the safest place.
I don't care if I ever see the light of day .
Unsaid and yet understood.
They never sleep. They never rest.
The curse of endless life.
??(An eternal wake from this.)??
Close your eyes and I'll be there
on the other side of every breath.
You'll never know, my love,
that sweet release of death.
Candle light upon your face
and in darkness is the safest place.
I don't care if I ever see the light of day .
Underground, oh under the flowers and where rivers flow.
Where the sun never shines and nothing grows.
And by the light of the moon we'll find our way.
Candle light upon your face
and this darkness is our saving grace.
I don't care if I ever see the light of day.
Candle light upon your face
and this darkness is our safest place.
I don't care if I ever see the ...
Candle light upon your face
and this darkness is our saving grace.
I don't care if I ever see the light of day.
