Brighter Lights

Genre: Folk/Acoustic

Lyrics

I believe no truth that you don’t tell me.
I read from my own lines, and I see great designs.
There is no line to cross, there is no black and white.
We live with our despite.

Before the walls all fell around me with a shrug of resignation,
I forgot where I was going when I reached my destination.

When I did not see, I remember I felt no fear.
I remember running away, into the night,
with a pocket full of money and a head full of much, much brighter lights.

I feel for those who chide “look after me and mine”,
when all I ask for is forgiveness for my weaknesses.
There is no line to cross, there is no black and white.
We live with our despite.

Before the walls all fell around me with a shrug of resignation,
I forgot where I was going when I reached my destination.

When I did not see, I remember I felt no fear.
I remember running away, into the night, with a pocket full of money and oblivion in sight.
When I did not see, I remember I felt no fear.
I remember running away, into the night,
with a pocket full of money and a head full of much, much brighter lights.

I’m in need of some repair. I’ve battered my own head with despair.
I need something to fix the holes, because the weather’s coming in.
I’m filling in the cracks, I’m bolting all the doors.
Please no more attacks. I’m sick and tired of wars.

And as the walls came crashing in, I saw a sky of crimson sin,
and black and white was coloured in.

When I did not see, I remember I felt no fear.
I remember running away, into the night, with a pocket full of money and oblivion in sight.
When I did not see, I remember I felt no fear.
I remember running away, into the night,
with a pocket full of money and a head full of much, much brighter lights.
