"Night Light" as written by and Janet Lee Weiss Carrie Rachel Brownstein....
Oh little light
That shines for me in the dark of night
Oh little sigh
Sometimes I follow you all the way home
I would almost have to ask you
I hate to be led
So give me a spark I can look for instead

How do you do it
This bitter and bloody world
Keep it together and shine for your family
How do you do it
With visions of worst to come
Live in the present
And spin off the rays of the sun

Oh little beam
Splitting the fog and the dirt in between
Oh simplify
Like a problem you try to work out in your mind
I would almost have to ask you
It's clumsy when said
So give me a spark I can look for instead

How do you do it
This bitter and bloody world
Keep it together and shine for your family
How do you do it
With visions of worst to come
Live in the present
And spin off the rays of the sun

    General CommentI think it's about someone saving you when you're in bad times and you don't want to be entirely dependent on them but they're all that's keeping you together.

    General Comment"Let's Call it Love" merges right into this song on the CD, it's supposed to be the contrast to that song. This song makes me think of my mom, embarassingly enough.

    General Commenthaunting. mysterious [who is this "light?"...a woman? a deity?] and a crushing vocal performance for the final track on the final and penultimate album from an all-female rock group. i think of this song in times of tribulation as my guiding force yet assign no person or thing to what i think of when i consider the "light?". When i dust this song off every few weeks or so, i listen to it over and over. How does someone stand up in the face of the random and cruel world and not only live and not be jaded, but excel? Beats me. Corin, who are you talking about?
