Lover Of The Light

In the middle of the night, I may watch you go
There’ll be no value in the strength of walls that I have grown
There’ll be no comfort in the shade of the shadows thrown
But I’ll be yours if you’ll be mine

Stretch out my life and pick the seams out
Take what you like, but close my ears and eyes
Watch me stumble over and over

I have done wrong, so build your tower
But call me home and I will build a throne
And wash my eyes out never again

But love the one you hold
And I’ll be your goal

To have and to hold
A lover of the light

Skin too tight and eyes like marbles
You spin me high so watch me as I glide
Before I tumble homeward, homeward

I know I tried, I was not stable
Flawed by pride, I miss my sanguine eyes
So hold my hands up, breathe in, breathe out.

But love the one you hold
And I’ll be your goal
To have and to hold
A lover of the light

And in the middle of the night, I may watch you go
There’ll be no value in the strength of walls that I have grown
There’ll be no comfort in the shade of the shadows thrown
You may not trust the promises of the change I’ll show
But I’ll be yours if you’ll be mine

So love the one you hold
And I will be your goal
To have and to hold
A lover of the light

So love the one you hold
And I will be your goal
To have and to hold
A lover of the light

  1. Felt the pain and quandary. Cried near the end…but he didn’t run off the cliff. Rather chose light and life in each new day’s adventure.

  2. What he “chose” was not the easier path…quite the opposite in the “hear and know”.
    But sometimes one can “hear and know” and still stumble.
    In this video Idris sets two plates out…and speaks to the unseen, pours out his heart even as his cup is simultaneously secretly being filled.
