"In Your Light" as written by and Walter Andre De Backer....
Get up in the morning
I can't keep it in
I'm falling all over myself
And I could jump out of my skin
Wanna break the door down
Just to greet the day
'Cause there ain't nothing that's more certain
To keep my blues away

And I say
(La la, hey hey)
And I say
(La la, hey hey)

And it can settle the sadness
And the voices in my head
When I'm in the glow of the warmth you throw
I can put all that to bed

(In your light, just when I'm in your light)
(In your light, just when I'm in your light)
(In your light, just when I'm in your light)
(In your light, just when I'm in your light)
In your light, just when I'm in your light
(In your light, just when I'm in your light)
And I won't get by if you take that light away
(In your light, just when I'm in your light)

And when you're smiling on me
That is all I need
To put behind me all my worry
And life's complexities

It may be only a moment
But the world just falls away
And I forget myself
And everything else
That depressed me yesterday

And I can sing
(La la, hey hey)
Yeah I sing
(La la, hey hey)

When I'm in your light
All of this is clear
If only I could always be just as I am right here
When I'm in your light, just when I'm in your light
And I won't get by if you take that light away

(La la, hey hey)
(In your light, just when I'm in your light)

When I'm in your light
Nothing brings me down
If only I could always feel just as I do right now
When I'm in your light, just when I'm in your light
And I won't get by if you take that light away

When I'm in your light
All of this is clear
(In your light, just when I'm in your light)
If only I could always be just as I am right here
(In your light, just when I'm in your light)
In your light, just when I'm in your light
(In your light, just when I'm in your light)
And I won't get by if you take that light away
(In your light, just when I'm in your light)
No I won't get by if you take that light away
(In your light, just when I'm in your light)
No I won't get by if you take that light away

    General CommentThe entire song has a simple meaning. It's about God and how the singer is overjoyed to have God in his life, washing away all the worries and stress of every day life. It could also be about a girlfriend as well, which every way you want to take it, but it was most likely written about God.

    General CommentThe first time I listened to this song I thought, 'this is what I want to wake up to on a summer morning'. It's lovely, and I think the meaning is clear; it's a new love and he's simply ecstatic. Anyone who has ever fallen in love will be nostalgic listening to this song. X

    Song MeaningIn an interview he mentioned being hesitant to put this on the album because he started to hate it after working on it for so long. He said "I mean, it's almost Christian Pop," so I don't know if that means it's a song about God or if it just sounds like it could be.

    General CommentAs far as I can tell Gotye is an Atheist so i don't think this is necessarily a song about God. To me it's about Love, it could be seen as a religious tune as it follows several conventions (talking about Light etc) but really the same could be said about any love, you want to be around them all the time.

    I really like this track, it has a very Peter Gabriel feel!
