"In the Light" as written by and Lonnie Rashid Lynn Bruce Malament....
So here I stand with this guitar in my hand
What was it that I came to say?
There was something about some hope and some dreams and some fear
Some ideas for a better way
If I really feel like I trust you
Maybe we'll talk about the pain
Maybe you'll understand me
Maybe you won't walk away

You know I ain't no television
I'm watching you while you're watching me
I can tell when the music reaches you
Something changes and I can see
And it shines down on my soul, you know
And deep inside I feel
We're in this thing together
And we're touching something real

And if we're gonna do it
Let's do it right
Let's bring back the magic tonight
It'll all work out fine
If you just let it shine
I'm gonna hold you
I'm gonna hold you in the Light

It's so easy to get distracted
When I'm working day in and day out
I get lost in all the numbers
I forget what it's all about
But couldn't we cross the boundaries
Can't we conquer the fear
Shouldn't we love each other?
Isn't that why we're here?

And if we're gonna do it
Let's do it right
Let's bring back the magic tonight
It'll all work out fine
If you just let it shine
I'm gonna hold you
I'm gonna hold you in the Light

    General CommentThis song is one of David's earliest, and it's about the connection he gets whenever he plays with the audience, himself and the music. Beautiful song.
