lyrics

I saw the light, I saw the light, I saw the light.
Freed me from the shadows of my mind.
I saw the light, I saw the light, I saw the light.
And it takes me over.

So many lonely days I wondered in the dark.
Scrambling and stumbling for a heart.
From this claustrophobic closet I depart.
Before it takes me over.

Engulfed by a swamp of pain. Blown out on the trail again tonight.
Engulfed by a swamp of pain. Blown out on the trail again tonight.

I saw the light, I saw the light, I saw the light.
Cleaning out the windows of my mind.
I saw the light, I saw the light, I saw the light.
Now my eyes are open.

Lately I’ve been feeling lost inside.
Landed in another place in time.
Close the door and leave it all behind.
Now I’m starting over.

Swallowed by a tidal wave. Rode the crest got washed away tonight.
Swallowed by a tidal wave. Rode the crest got washed away tonight.

I saw the light, I saw the light, I saw the light.
Freed me from the shadows of my mind.
I saw the light, I saw the light, I saw the light.
And it takes me over.
Now my eyes are open.
Now I’m starting over.
