lyrics

out of the darkness
out in the night
though i have often been wrong
deep in my blindness
i saw this light
out of the emptiness there was a…
there came a…

song in my head
when i lay down to bed
trying to forget the day
i can't be clear what i started to hear
i always doubt things that way

a sound so beautiful
wild and beautiful
shaking and waking what i always knew
old things forgotten
they’ll soon turn rotten
but what is true is always true
and always new

but i felt alone
i was stuck on the phone
trying too hard to get through
just barely alive until
five forty-five
and that's what time i met you

that was the day i met you

so touch me my darling
drink from this darkness
dare you to not run away
flood me your lightning
flood me your tenderness
touch me and know me and
show me the day

and the way that i was
and the things that i feared
i was the man on the run
i can't be clear
what i'm even doing here

but i want to run on the fields of your sun
i want to run on your sun
baby let’s run on the sun
