The Light Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

And regardless in the evening
Light is thrown by the setting sun
Speeds along this vast familiar
And silently crosses everyone

It's the light that's changing
It's the light that's changing
It's the light that's changing
It's only the light

Across the schoolyards, across the gardens
Across the chapels where lovers have leapt
Across the table in our old kitchen
Across the cities where our future slept

It's the light that's changing
It's the light that's changing
It's the light that's changing
It's only the light

What can I do to defy you?
Oh, what can I do to deny you?
'Cause I want no part of this breaking
This is a hurtful mistake you are making

And to me this love was true and shining
Oh, these years were real and defining
Please, please don't forget how much I meant to you
When, when you are redefined by someone new

Across what's left of these old places
Across the playgrounds where old friends play
Across the lines on familiar faces
Across the nothing that we say

It's the light that's breaking
It's the light that's breaking
It's the light that's breaking
It's only the light
