"Light Up The Room" as written by James Thomas New, James Roger Arguile, Niall Richard Buckler, Oliver James Reginald Frost and Gareth Edward Jennings....
You walk the streets alone again
But keep your head up high
I never said that this was fine
But all you had was a picture in your mind

And how many people live their lives
As a background prop
Sometimes the spotlight drops on me
But I'm not enough and I'm too proud not to see

Light up this room
'Cause it's dark in here and I'm told that you're coming
Round soon
You're everything and more
But you don't seem to care so I'm drinking myself to the floor

Everyone there will turn towards me
I'm so obvious
I'd love to tell you so you know
But whats the point when the whole world tells you so

So light up this room
'Cause it's dark in here and I'm told that you're coming
Round soon
You're everything and more
But you don't seem to care so I'm drinking myself to the
Floor

Could you light up this room
Anymore

    General Commentits a beautiful song.

    i love 'id love to tell you so you know
    but whats the point when the whole world tells you so'

    its raw frustration at holding back. its a really beautiful way of putting something that feels so real.

    its just beautiful.

    love that. love it.

    my fave bit has gotta be when the chorus comes round for like the millionth time & there's an extra voice doing shouty harmonies over the top... now that IS beautiful :)

    xXx
