Lyrics as Poems of Life: ‘Lover of the Light’

And in the middle of the night
I may watch you go
There’ll be no value in the strength
Of walls that I have grown
There’ll be no comfort in the shade
Of the shadows thrown
But I’d be yours if you’d be mine

Stretch out my life
And pick the seams out
Take what you like
But close my ears and eyes
Watch me stumble over and over

I had done wrong
You build your tower
But call me home
And I will build a throne

And wash my eyes out
Never again

But love the one you hold
And I’ll be your gold
To have and to hold
A lover of the lights

With skin too tight
And eyes like marbles
You spin me high
So watch me as I glide
Before I tumble homeward, homeward
I know I tried

I was not stable
And flawed by pride
I miss my sanguine eyes
So hold my hands up –
Breathe in and breathe out

So love the one you hold
And I’ll be your gold
To have and to hold
A lover of the lights

And in the middle of the night
I may watch you go
There’ll be no value in the strength
Of walls that I have grown
There’ll be no comfort in the shade
Of the shadows thrown

You may not trust the promises
Of the change I’ll show

But I’d be yours if you’d be mine
So love the one you hold
And I’ll be your gold
To have and to hold
A lover of the lights
So love the one you hold
And I will be your gold
To have and to hold
A lover of the lights
