"The Last Pale Light in the West" as written by and Benjamin Nichols....
In my hands, I hold the ashes
In my veins, black pitch runs
In my chest, a fire catches
In my way, the setting sun
Dark clouds gather 'round me
Due northwest, the soul is bound
And I will go, on ahead free
There's a light yet to be found

The last pale light in the west
The last pale light in the west

And I ask for no redemption
In this cold and barren place
Still I see a faint reflection
And so by it, I got my way

The last pale light in the west
The last pale light in the west

    General CommentI believe the lyrics are "In my chest, a fire catches" not "if I can catch this".
    Also, the word is "barren" not "barron".

    "And I ask for no redemption
    ⁠In this cold and barren place
    ⁠Still I see the faint reflection
    And so by it, guide my way"


    Is correct

    General CommentSuch a gorgeous song, like many II discovered it through the Walking Dead, and am surprised that more folks haven't commented due to the excellence of the song and the power of the scene it was used in. Listening to Ben Nichols now too-showing much promise

    This song makes me want to just wander into oblivion and leave everything bad behind and find freedom somewhere else, the more desolate the better

    General CommentThese lyrics are horribly wrong. I have tried to submit the correct ones. The lyrics in some of the verses need to be corrected to read as follows:

    "In my hands, I hold the ashes
    In my veins, black pitch runs
    In my chest, a fire catches
    In my way, the setting sun"

    "Dark clouds gather 'round me
    To the west, my soul is bound"

    "In this cold and barren place"

    "Still I see the faint reflection
    And so by it, I guide my way"
