Oh searching tired of love grown up, now it all falls out
Oh lovely dreamer - magic prince - swoop you up, swoop you up
But no no i, just one guess - man at all
While I grow up, came your way
Nobody's so special in this way, nobody to sweep you away

Oh light, oh light come and lift me up
Oh light please come lift me up
Oh sweet light come lift me up

When you go down remember your steps
As a baby rememberin' how he walked
Rememberin' all the sweetest dreaming you did
While you tick-tock along, but now all gone
There's nothing here for your dream but hope in a song
Just like the bent back of an old woman that you know
It's all gone and severed and alone, so I rhyme

So now all you see is sad
All look the same as the wall inside
She feels swallowed up, she feels tired as she could
Creepin' along this wall
And this wall it's so long
It's a wall, and lips they're alone
Sweet lips they've lost their way a while
Like the bent back of an old woman

What's true that way?
What's true, hey way?

I came crying to you, came on me knees
Begging father lift me up please
But no as I came down, no flowered sound
Just emptiness in side me

Oh light lift me up, please lift me up
Come down and pick me up already
Forgive me all my selfish ways sweet light
Pick me up from my misery

I'm gonna get away - I'm back to you
The way that I do
The way that I picture you
The way that I picture you

Lift me up, from the bottom to the top
Lift me up, sweet light
Lift me up, from the bottom to the top
Lift me up, sweet light
Lift me up, bottom to the top
Lift me up, sweet light
Lift me up, from the bottom to the top
Lift me up, sweet light
