"Only Light" as written by and Oliver James Mcgill Ross James Irwin....
All along the street
They're holding signs that say
That I am lost
And that I do not know the way
I asked the rock
Sitting in a shade of grey
I asked the rock
He didn't have a thing to say

But you are the only light I see
You are the only light I need
When everybody else is sleeping
You come along and help me breathe

When I was a stone
No one knew that I was there
I'd sing my song and
No one ever really cared
I went to the mountain
Face all covered in tears
I wept but
Mountain didn't seem to hear

So you are the only light I see
You are the only light I need
When everybody else is sleeping
You come along and help me breathe

You are the only light I see
You are the only light I see

I love you
Till the mountain starts to cry
I love you
If I don't know the reason why
I love you
Until I do not know my name
I ask you
Wouldn't you have done the same

Oh you are the only light I see
You are the only light I need
When everybody else is sleeping
You come along and help me breathe

You are the only light I see
You are the only light I need
When everybody else is sleeping
You bring the magic over me

You are the only light I see..
You are the only light I see..
You are the only light I see..
You are the only light I see..

    General CommentThis is probably my favourite track from Cinema, beautifully sublime. Overall a more mature album with some sober underlying messages.
