[Verse 1]
Watching the minute hand
Frozen solid not moving
Still we believe we can
But we're afraid of losing
Watching from over here
It's hardly worth competing
I'm almost out of here
While breaking a heart that's beating
Just as I start giving up
I'm not backing up
[Chorus]
Run into the light
Get out of your own way
Not afraid to fight
Believe in what you say
I'll hold on till the night
Hanging by a thread
I'm not scared to let go
Thoughts inside your head
That creep up to get you
I believe this is right
So I'll hold on til the night
[Verse 2]
I climbed up on a tree
To get a new perspective
If love is worth the time
The price is being rejected
Just as I start falling down
I turned this around
[Chorus]
Run into the light
Get out of your own way
Not afraid to fight
Believe in what you say
I'll hold on till the night
Hanging by a thread
I'm not scared to let go
Thoughts inside your head
That creep up to get you
I believe this is right
So I'll hold on til the night
[Bridge]
Hold on til I'm with you
All I've got to give you
All my fears are slowly fading to never know
Yes I start running running running running!
[Chorus]
Run into the light
Get out of your own way
Not afraid to fight
Believe in what you say
I'll hold on till the night
(Believe that this is the night)
Hanging by a thread
I'm not scared to let go
Thoughts inside your head
That creep up to get you
I believe this is right
So I'll hold on til the night

    Chorus(indonesian)
    berlari menuju cahaya
    keluar dari jalanmu sendiri
    tak takut untuk berjuang
    percaya apa yang kamu katakan
    ku akan bertahan hingga malam
    tergantung pada seutas benang
    aku tak takut untuk melepaskan
    pikiran dalam kepalamu
    yang merayap untuk mendapatkanmu
    aku percaya ini benar
    jadi saya akan bertahan hingga malam

    I think this means that to love someone you have to be you nobody will love you compleetley untill your yourself and when you find the heart that belongs to you its got a warm glow or a "light" where you cant see untill night you have to be paishent but never give up on the one you love
