Regina Spektor – The Light lyrics

[Verse 1]
The light was shining in my eyes before I closed them
And all the dreams I had the night before came back
The faces that I'd seen looked so familiar
But they're just strangers - I haven't met them yet

[PreChorus 1]
I know the morning is wiser than the evening
I know that wrong and right can sometimes look the same
So many things I know, but they don't help me
Each day I open up my eyes and start again
[Chorus 1]
The light comes shining in my eyes
The light comes shining in my eyes
The light comes shining in my eyes
The light comes shining in my eyes

[Verse 2]
So many stories, I want to tell you
I wish that I could show you the many things I've seen
You and your daddy, you both look like poets
Your eyes are open wide while you are in a dream

[PreChorus 2]
I know the morning is wiser than the night time
I know there's nothing wrong, I shouldn't feel so down
So many things I know, but they don't help me
Each day I open up my eyes to look around

[Chorus 2]
The sun comes shining in my eyes
The sun comes shining in my eyes
The sun comes shining in my eyes
The sun comes shining in....

[Bridge]
My eyes are closed now
Count the stars inside your mind
Count the breaths, count heartbeats
Count the sounds of life

[Verse 3]
The light was shining in my eyes before I closed them
And all the dreams I had the night before were gone
The faces that I'd seen looked so familiar
But I forgot them all when I saw the sun

[PreChorus 3]
I know the morning is wiser than the evening
I know that all of life just happens in between
So many things I know, but they don't help me
Each day I open up my eyes and it begins

[Chorus 1]
The light comes shining in my eyes
The light comes shining in my eyes
The light comes shining in my eyes
The light comes shining in my eyes

[Outro]
The light, the light, the light, the light
The light, the light, the light...
