Vanna – The Things He Carried lyrics
Light it up.
(A flash so thin, through a sky so grey)
Look away!
Our faces turned.
It's a plea to the ear
(plea to the ear)
It's a walk to my hands
It's a fall to my feet
(fall to my feet)
To find sympathy

Now you're lost
In the dark.
And nowhere to be found.
But I know you'll be waiting there for us.
In the dark,
You're nowhere to be found,
But I know you'll be waiting there.

His fortunes.
Our futures at hand.
We light,
Light up like cities in the night.

Light this!
Like a happy scene.
It's a set.
It's all it takes,
To trick our eyes,
And fabricate.
Honest,
Honest goodbyes.

Now you're lost
In the dark.
And nowhere to be found.
But I know you'll be waiting there for us.
In the dark,
You're nowhere to be found.
But our lives light up at times like these.

At time, our lives,
Light up like cities in the night. (2x)

His fortunes.
Our futures at hand.
We light,
Light up like cities in the night.
(2x)
(At times, our lives, light up like cities in the night)
Like rivers,
We splinter.
You don't have to leave.
Run away with me.
(At times, our lives, light up like cities in the night)
