Two Lights Lyrics

by Five For Fighting

What is courage? Is it brave?
What are lions? I've only seen them in parades
How is love supposed to read?
In a footnote of history

What's a tap on your shoulder?
That you're afraid to look over
A soldier's down in a fire fight
No one can look me in the eye

This is what it means to be alone

Tear out my heart, feed it to lions
Oh, for this one wish I beg you this tonight
Show me no mercy but spare me my pride
Oh, I'm going for a drive

And if you find out he's coming home
When I come around the corner
I'll know that it's alright
Just leave me two lights

He was young just 23, didn't have to go
But it was the man he wanted to be
Like every son he was an only one
And one day he came to me, said

Freedom's nothing to look over
Till each man can stand upon its shoulder
I'll right you mountains of letters
Each one a little bit better

And know I'll never be alone

Tear out my heart, feed it to lions
Oh, for this one wish I beg you this tonight
Show me no mercy but spare me my pride
Oh, I'm going for a drive

And if you find out he's coming home
When I come around the corner
I'll know that it's alright
Just leave me two lights

Silent angels light the road up ahead
As the sentries guard the way
On the avenue of borrowed time

I'm almost home, the sun's to rise
I got to know, I've been driving all the night
There's our corner up ahead
I'm alive and I am dead

I drive right through the stop sign
I turn my head as I lift my eyes
My eyes burn

Tear out my heart, feed it to lions
For this one wish I beg you this tonight
Show me no mercy, spare me my pride
I'm going for a drive
