"Chase This Light" as written by and James Christopher/burch Adkins....
I'm a suspect, I'm a traitor
I'm only here in body visiting
Your the faces in the distant screens
The beauty is in what isn't said
I'm rising to my feet

Because tonight the world turned on me
Because right now I don't dare breath

Oh babe I know
It's alive
And somewhere for us to find tonight
Chase this light with me

My just world
My last call
My life is yours in your gifted hands
Confetti rain falls in a quiet stream
These things I found are special now
The night is in my reach

Because tonight the world turned on me
Because right now I don't dare breath

Oh babe I know
It's alive
And somewhere for us to find tonight
Chase this light with me

And see still, photograph
Through our mothers eyes I can see
I've seen the best of love
The best of hate
The best reward is earned and I paid
For every single word
I've ever read

Confetti rain falls in a quiet stream
The beauty is in what you make it
So get up on your feet

Because tonight the world turned on me
Because right now I don't dare breath

    General CommentCorrected lyrics.

    I'm a suspect, I'm a traitor,
    I'm only here in body visiting.
    Yellow faces in the distance screams,
    "The beauty is in what isn't said,"
    I'm rising to my feet,

    Because tonight, the world turned in me.
    Because right now, I don't dare to breathe.
    Oh, babe, I know, it's alight and somewhere for us to find,
    Tonight, oh chase this light with me.

    My just so, my last call,
    My life is yours in your gifted hands.
    Confetti rainfall in a quiet street.
    These things I've found are special now,
    The knot is in my reach,

    Because tonight, the world turned in me.
    Because right now, I don't dare to breathe.
    Oh, babe, I know, it's alight and somewhere for us to find,
    Tonight, oh chase this light with me.

    A movie, still photograph,
    Through a martyr's eyes can I see,
    I've seen the best of love, the best of hate, the best reward is earned,
    And I've paid for every single word I ever said.

    Confetti rainfall in a quiet streets.
    The beauty is in what you make it,
    So get up on your feet.

    Because tonight, the world turned in me,
    Because right now, I don't dare to breathe.
    Oh, babe, I know, it's alight and somewhere for us to find,
    Tonight, oh chase this light with me.
    Because tonight, the world turned in me.
    Because right now, I don't dare to breathe.
    Oh, babe, I know, it's alight and somewhere for us to find,
    Tonight, chase this light with me.

    General Commentnew album out on Oct 16th.
    this song is... well i love the melody and most of the lyrics, but some lines could use changing, i think. of course i've always though that of many JEW songs.
    i'll wait for the final CD version before i post my "meaning"
