"Light Outside" as written by and William Michael Grubbs....
I know you wanna stay in bed
But it’s light outside
It’s light outside
So know I'm gonna stay right here
You saved my life once
You saved my life

And I
Will try
To get you up
'Cause it’s beautiful outside
And we’ll fall
But we’ll try
We’ll do our best
And I’ll love you all the while
Because you saved my life once
Because you saved my life once

I know you wanna rest your head
And just forget the night
Forget the night
So know I’m gonna stay right here
I’ll sit by your side
Sit by your side

And I
I’ll try
To get you up
It’s beautiful outside
We’ll fall
But we’ll try
We’ll do our best
And I’ll love you all the while
Because you saved my life once
Because you saved my life once
Because you saved my life once
Because you saved my life once

I think I always knew you would be
I think I always knew you would be
The greatest
The greatest

I think I always knew you would be
I think I always knew you would be
The greatest
The greatest

Because you saved my life once
Because you saved my life once
Because you saved my life once
Because you saved my life once

    General CommentWow! all i can say is that i wish i had someone to write this song for me. Wakey!Wakey! will just have to be my best friend on this issue. Conflicting, I find comfort in this song from the perspective that Wakey!Wakey! serves as my best friend. But also, I am saddened that my life is devoid of such a friend who would give me such comfort.

    This whole album is like a best friend has written it for me.
    Except..they haven't...

    My Interpretationthis is indeed an amazing song.
    I believe that his girlfriend is depressed and he is assuring her that he is with her through it all. he says she saved his life once before, perhaps just the fact that she would choose him is saving him from his past. its unclear but irrelevant to the specific meaning. it implies that she is special to him in every way, and that is what's important. He assures her that she is the greatest, and he always knew it. beautiful song that shows how love shines through the darkness and that love is deeper than just the fun happy infatuated times. Love is strong and evident through times of despair.

    General CommentI have always lisened to this song, but itwas only now that I found a way to relate to it. I know that this isn't the real meaning with this song, but I like to think to that. I feel like this son is for my best friend. She is really sick and are always tired. She has some good and some bad days, but I tell her that it is hope for her to get better. I tell her how much I love her and she is the best person I know. To the last I tell her all of this because she once saved my life by becoming my friend. Now I wish I could do the same to her...
