"All Your Light (Times Like These)" as written by and John Baldwin Gourley....
I'm just the shadow of a bigger man
Glowing brighter with each year I am
I was standing on a mountain
Just looking down

It's like my daddy says
You gotta use your head

My body wont work for nobody but me sone
No one said that I aim to please

All your light can save me
All your light all your light can't save me
I won't wait for my time to come
I can't wait I can't wait for my time to come

My body wont work for nobody but me son

As a boy I had it figured out
There are things that you cant live without

And I became
Whole again
Cause no one said no one said no one said
There'd be times like these

I said all your light can save me
All your light all your light can save me
I won't wait for my time to come
I can't wait I can't wait for my time to come

My body wont work for nobody but me son
No one said there'd be times like these

My body wont work for nobody but me son
No one said there'd be times like these

My body wont work for nobody but me son
No one said there'd be times like these

My body wont work for nobody but me son
No one said there'd be times like these

I was making plans
When I broke your rings
No one said no one said no one said it'd be suicide

All your light can save me
All your light all your light can save me
I won't wait for my time to come
I can't wait I can't wait for my time to come

All your light can save me
All your light all your light can save me
I won't wait for my time to come
I can't wait I can't wait for my time to come

All your light can save me
All your light all your light can save me
I won't wait for my time to come
I can't wait I can't wait for my time to come

All your light can save me
All your light all your light can save me
I won't wait for my time to come
I can't wait I can't wait for my time to come

    General Commenti'm just the shadow of a bigger man
    glowing brighter with each year i am
    i was standing on a mountain
    just looking down (on you on you)

    it's like my daddy said
    "you gotta use your head" (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)
    yeah, no one said that i aim to please


    all your light can't save me
    all your light, all your light can't save me
    i won't wait though my time may come
    i can't wait, i can't wait
    my time may come (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)

    as a boy i had it figured out
    there are things that you cant live without
    but money, it's sad but true, would surely top that list
    and your rules your rules, well they would not be missed
    well i became
    whole again
    cause no one said no one said no one said
    there'd be times like these

    i said, all your light can't save me
    all your light, all your light can't save me
    i won't wait though my time may come
    i can't wait, i can't wait
    my time may come

    (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)
    no one said there'd be times like these
    (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)
    no one said there'd be times like these
    (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)
    no one said there'd be times like these
    (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)
    well, no one said there'd be times like these

    i was licking flames, when i broke your reins
    still, no one said no one said no one said it'd be suicide

    all your light can't save me
    all your light, all your light can't save me
    i won't wait though my time may come
    i can't wait, i can't wait
    my time may come

    (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)
    no one said there'd be times like these
    (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)
    no one said there'd be times like these

    (jam)

    all your light can't save me
    all your light, all your light can't save me
    i won't wait though my time may come
    i can't wait, i can't wait
    my time may come
    (repeat)

    Lyric CorrectionYou're missing a part after
    "it's like my daddy says
    you gotta use your head"
    I'm pretty sure it's
    "My body won't work for nobody but me son
    No one said that angels bleed"

    General Commentit's not angels bleed it's "no one said that i'd aim to please" it's called a cd booklet. song is amazing, maybe the best they've ever done.

    General Commentbest track on the album! Kinda self explanatory, just the way the song was put together was killer.
