"Step into the Light" as written by Robert Conley and Darren Hayes....
I have turned away from you
And I am godless
A wasteland of poison
A hidden fortress
I have blackened out the stars
And hidden frequencies
I have silenced all the waves
And forbidden secrecies

So step into your light
This dog doesn't bite, oh
I just wanna be your friend
You know, I've never been in love before
I've never been in love before

There is nothing of you now
No ghost, no not a trace
No flower, not a seed
Nor perfume in your place
I have searched amidst
A barren plane of emptiness

I am worthless, It is futile
You're invisible, I am infantile

So step into your light, oh
This dog doesn't bite, oh
I just wanna be your friend
You know, I've never been in love before
I've never been in love before

I have murdered the divine in me
Set the goodness free
I have squandered it all
I am less than the sum
I am parts of the whole
There is something missing
There is something I stole
(There is something I stole)
(There is something I stole)
(There is something I stole)
(There is something I stole)

Why have you forsaken me?
Where do you hide?
I feel the betrayal
Simmers, it blisters
It digs down and burrows
Deeper inside, more than a try
(I've never been in love before)
I cannot deny
(I've never been in love before)
That it
(I've never been in love before)
It feels like
It feels like
It feels like
It feels like
It feels like
It feels like
(I've never been in love before)
(I've never been in love before)
(I've never been in love before)
(I've never been in love before)
(I've never been in love before)
(I've never been in love before)
Love

So step into the light, oh
This dog doesn't bite, oh
I just wanna be your friend
You know that I've never been in love before
I've never been in love before
So step into the light, oh
You know this dog doesn't bite, oh
They caught up our hands
You know, I've never been in love before

    General CommentI cannot believe that this song only has one comment. Signed up to this site just to say this song has replaced Truly Madly Deeply as my favourite song of all time. Amazingly I have been playing non-stop since the launch of the album, and havn't grown tired of it.

    Gorgeous song, I look into it someone who is scared to touch love, possibly with a good friend, takes the leap and gets bitten. The lines...Why have you forsaken me... and so on are scary how close they hit to home. Once again I feel like it's Darren writing a song about my life, which is why I love his music

    General CommentTo me this song means a rebirth in love. Going through such torture and pain with past love. Then all of a sudden you find someone who engulfs your life. You lost the meaning of love but now you two have found it again. So the chorus is explaining don't worry about getting hurt anymore we have discovered what love is. You trust each other with everything you believe in and you haven't reached the euphoria of love but you guys are travelling together to find it again

    General CommentThis is a shimmering ballad that I could listen to for hours on end. It captivates me!
    I think it's about not wanting to take the leap into love; feeling that you are worthless, and yet there is still hope.

    Song MeaningThis reminds me much of a feeling of rebirth and reconciling your past, self-hated persona with a new one who *can* love and try to accept it. It sounds like it may reflect Darren's own feelings of guilt on finding his own homosexual self and coming to terms with the fact that he wants to feel worthwhile as himself. This is about someone trying very hard to be friends or lovers with someone new, not quite trusting yourself or others, and not quite rid of the negative programming of the past.
