Good Riddance – This Is The Light lyrics

I had a dream that I woke up in a sweat
Another self-inflicted nightmare I will not forget
I felt a light
I saw you shine something's wrong
I felt that tremor in my soul
That memory one last time

This is the light
This is the way
Where the darkness keeps the sun away
This is the light
This is the way
This stream of memories that carries me away

I know my head
At least I thought I did
I'd take a silver bullet through my soul if I could give
This phantom friend
This runaway train of thought
Somebody's been following me through every trial I've ever sought
Never sought

These tears
Leave scars
As they run down my face
I'm changing
I'm leaving now
I'm leaving for a better place
