So Many Lights

lyrics

So many lights in this alabaster night
Where the darkest parts have all just drained away,
So many voices, I can hear the past make noises
But it’s getting harder to know what they say
But this street can hear the call of Christmas Day

If I lose my place in this rough and tumble race
That is filling me with horror and dismay
Will you pick me up and make sure I don’t give up?
I never ask for any help in any way
But there’s just something in my bones this Christmas Day

I’ve always said that the voices in our heads
Were deliberately leading us astray
But that’s a lie, a filthy lie
They’re just figuring it all out along the way
Just like everybody else on Christmas Day

I went for a walk through the evening song
I went for a drive through the crumbling day
I went for a swim in your lie, “there’s nothing wrong”
I have vowed to turn this ‘round on Christmas Day
I have swallowed all my pride on Christmas Day
I have run to win you back on Christmas Day
I don’t say it that much
I don’t say it enough
I don’t say it at all
But I hope it’s enough
I love you, you know.
