(Verse)
Seen that muse, I won’t be scared,
She’s wearing flowers, not snakes up in her hair tonight.
In love we’ve been around before,
We washed up on the old shore, but it’s new tonight.

(Chorus)
It’s only light, she said,
But we are liars to be free.
We steal the light to see.

(Verse)
The hour falls, we fall to dance,
The sirens and the marching band sing, it’s nothing but chance tonight.
A billion ones and many few,
When everyone I never knew, they’re here tonight.

(Chorus)
It’s only light, we said,
But we are liars to be free.
We steal the light to see.

(Bridge)
What if I’m lonely?
What if the sky should fall and disappear?
For one night only
Open your eyes and run to be free.
So if I may, what if I say it’s good to have you here?

(Verse)
She said if you lead I’ll come along
And if you need me there I’ll sing a song tonight.
And all that glows and all that shines
And all we leave behind will keep us warm tonight.

(Chorus)
It’s only light, I said,
But we are liars to be free.
We steal the light to see.

(Bridge)
What if I’m lonely?
What if the sky should fall and disappear?
For one night only
Open your eyes and run to be free.
I love you only,
Until the skies fall down and disappear
So if I may, what if I say it’s good to have you here?
