"Glow" as written by and Steven Wilson Aviv Geffen....
I show the scars
Of every fear and doubt
I hurt myself
To let the darkness out
Hurt...

The days go bye
And nothing brings me joy
The glow was strong
When I was a boy
But it's gone...

And the glow
It goes
So slow
It goes

Cracks appear
And passion sleeps away
Colors fade
And turns to shades of gray
Fade away...

And the glow
It goes
So slow
It goes

If you knew the man I used to be
Please hold me under the sea
Or scratch my arms 'till they bleed
Save me
Will you help me to feel ... the glow?

    General CommentActually, the correct lyrics are:

    "I show the scars of every fear and doubt
    I hurt myself to let the darkness out
    Out

    The days go by and nothing brings me joy
    the glow was strong when I was a boy
    But it's gone

    And the glow
    It goes
    So slow
    It goes

    Cracks appear and passion slips away
    Colors fade and turn to shades of grey
    Fade away

    If you knew the man I used to be
    Please hold me under the sea
    Or scratch my arms till they bleed
    Save me
    Will you help me to feel the glow?"

    Written down exactly like that. I'll be submitting correct versions of all of the incorrect lyrics of Blackfield. In the comments. Sorry for being an ass. ;)

    General CommentTo me, the "Glow" is the joy you felt at being alive when you were a child. But as you grow older and are forced to adjust to society, you realize the world isn't as beautiful as you once thought, and the happiness and passion you once felt slowly disappears. It's something I feel deeply.

    General CommentDeep depression, self injury...

    And for god's fucking sake, this lyrics are so damn' fucked up, I mean they're totally wrong!!!

    Correct version is:
    show the scars
    of every fear and doubt
    i hurt myself
    to let the darkness out
    out...

    the days go bye
    and nothing brings me joy
    the glow was strong
    when i was a boy
    but it's gone

    and the glow
    it goes
    so slow
    it goes

    cracks appear
    and passion slips away
    colors fade
    and turn to shades of grey
    fade away

    and the glow...

    if you knew the man i used to be
    please hold me under the sea
    or scratch my arms till they bleed
    save me
    will you help me to feel the glow?

    General CommentI must say, after my recent Hell lately, that this song has helped me through a great deal of pain. I'm grateful for great music like this.

    General Comment"The days go 'bye'"? I don't think that's an intentional pun from Steve...

    General CommentMy favorite song of this album. I guess everyone can at least sometimes relate to that except for the self-injury line ("I hurt myself to let the darkness out" is such a wonderful description for that btw.!). I especially love the chorus lines because that's something I always felt myself. It's not like something's gone from one day to another, but while growing up it slowly disappears and you can do nothing about it.
