lyrics

If I Had a Light

Did you deceive
Did you want to believe
I swear, swear, swear it's true

Never begin
Once it's under the skin
I swear, swear, swear to you

If I had a place to hide
If I had a light inside
If I could let it shine then I'd
Be pure and just as weak as you

Down in the hole
Where the dreams shovel coal
Burns the truth they can never know

Blacker than soot
Like a murder, he put
A kiss on my lips, soft and slow

If I had a place to hide
If I had a light inside
If I could let it shine then I'd
Be pure and just as weak as you

When I learn the reasons for rain
When I burn the candles in trance
When we walk together in grain
I will scream, the ghost and the chance

If I had a place to hide
If I'd had a hope that died
If I had a light inside
If I could let it shine then I'd…
I’d be just as weak as you
