If I can get through the day,
I'll have a date with the moon.
That's how I spend all my worthless time on the sand,
Thinking that my ship will be coming soon.
Look at these hands,
They've been in gloves for years.
That's how I spend all my worthless rounds in the ring,
Hoping that the other guy will disappear.

But you and your face of light.
It's a brilliant roman candle that separates the day from the night.
It's that clean, clear truth that sorts our the wrong from the right.
You and your face of light.

If I can get through tonight,
I'm waking up with my wings.
There's no way I can sleep my way through a fight,
And I think I'm gonna like what tomorrow brings.
Look at my eyes,
Don't even know who I am.
That's how I spend all my worthless time on the floor,
Waiting for you to tell me I'm a man.

But you and your face of light.
It's a brilliant roman candle that separates the day from the night.
It's that clean, clear truth that sorts our the wrong from the right.
You and your face of light

    Get up and be who you were meant to be. Do what needs to be done. Stop waiting for your circumstances to change. The wings to fly come in the midst or sometimes even after the fight. Stop waiting around for someone to affirm and validate you. If you look to the light, reject the darkness, and turn in the direction of the light you will know what to do in the moment. You've planned and prepared enough. Get into the ring and start swinging. Take your gloves off and start getting your hands dirty in the real world of relationships and working for the good of others. In the end you will be blessed.

    The meaning is irrelevant unless you want it to be. Just listen to it a few times over and come to your own conclusion of what it means, then... Just hold on to that meaning and enjoy the music. Songs like this are timeless and are far too rare to come by for people to be bothering themselves with the dilemma of decoding some universal and all important meaning behind it. Just love the song and feel what you will about it, then share the song with someone else.
