lyrics

A HOLDING LIGHT

It’s easy
in the world today
to let it all fade away to the dark
with stars in our eyes
heavy clouds in the skies
and the shadows fall hard on your heart

Sometimes it feels like I’m taking on water
tremble and totter
I’m tipping toward the black
drinking the cold
sinking so low
I might be never coming back

As the day burns away
the blue turns to grey
Hyperion surrenders to the night . . .
everybody knows
just before it goes
there’s a holding light . . .

Sure, just take a look around
you know the nightwolves are bound
to pull some weak ones down
but if it’s you they’re coming for this time
damn them and their line
you got to keep the fight with all of your might

just reach out your hand and remember that light
and hold on, hold on, hold. . .

As the day burns away
the blue turns to grey
Hyperion surrenders to the night , , ,
everybody knows
just before it goes
there’s a holding light . . .
to help you to get through alright
