Bahamas – Lost In The Light lyrics

I'm lost in the light
I pray for the night
To take me, to take me to

After so many words
Still nothing's heard

Don't know what we should do

So if someone can see me now, let them see you

It was my greatest thrill
But we just stood still
You let me hold your hand 'til I had my thrill

Even countin' sheep
Don't help me sleep
I just toss and turn right there beside you

So if someone could help me now, they'd help you too.

They'd help you to
See you through
All the hard things we've all gotta do
Cause this life is long
And so you wouldn't be wrong

Bein' free you and me on my own!

And I held my own
Still I rattled your bones
I said some awful things and I take them back

If we would try again
Just remember when
Before we were lovers, I swear we were friends

So if someone could see me now let them see you

Let them see you
See you through
All the hard things we've all gotta do
Cause this life is long
So you wouldn't be wrong
Bein' free here with me on my own!

    This is an apologetic lament expressing the regret of a guy who has lost his love and 'seen the light' of his failure. He wishes when people see (or saw) him they'd see her because she is a better person and is more deserving than him. He is admitting to failure (lack of commitment) and wishing she didn't feel she failed. Ironically, the title itself is an expression of positivity rather than failure. Exquisitely poignant!
