Light House Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
When I couldn't see you for the wall
What was that you said?
What was that you said, before you called?
Verse 2
And when I couldn't catch you for the fall
What was that you said?
What was that you said?
Verse 3
"Nothing hurts this much"
Verse 4
But I've seen the way
That bodies lie
And bodies tend to break
Verse 5
And I've been away
I've been away too long
Too long to be afraid
Verse 6
But you know
What you know is better
Is brighter
Verse 7
And you know
You know
What you know is better
Is brighter
Verse 8
And this is where we were, when I showed you the dark
Inside of me, in spite of me
On a bench in the park
You said to me:
Verse 9
"This is not you
This is not you..
This is not you!"
Verse 10
But I've seen the way
That bodies lie
And bodies tend to break
Verse 11
And I've been away
I've been away too long
And I don't know a better place
Verse 12
(Chorus)
Verse 13
And this is where we are
In your bed, in my arms
Outside of me
In spite of, 'we'
Verse 14
I showed you the dark
And you said to me:
Verse 15
"You know
What you know is better
Is brighter"
Verse 16
"And you know, you know
What you know is better
Is brighter"
