"Until the Dawn Appears" as written by and Matthew Perryman Jones....
I’ve been turning up the stones in my own discontent
And I’m finding out where all my hidden sorrows went
They’ve been laying there for years,
I kept them out of view
But it's time I dust you off and take a good look at you

Oh how long?
Oh How long?
Oooh

Well it's easier to clench your fist and grind your teeth
Then to look into the sadness that lives underneath
You can kill off all those feelings
They’ll just turn to ghosts
They will take over your house and become the host

Oh how long?
Oh how long?
Oooh

Well the Man of Sorrows walked the shores of Galilee
And his eyes were cast with joy towards the crystal sea
Well the shadows will be gone and all these bitter tears
And my heart will hang on that until the dawn appears

Oh how long
Oh how long
Oh You, You won’t let me go
Oh no, no.
Oh no You won’t let me go
Oh no, oh no, You won’t let me go
Oh no, oh no You won’t let me go

    I’ve been turning up the stones in my own discontent
    And I’m finding out where all my hidden sorrows went
    They’ve been laying there for years,
    I kept them out of use (you?)
    But it's time I dust you off and take a good look at you

    Oh how long?
    Oh How long?
    Oooh

    Well, it's easier to clench your first and grind your teeth
    Then to look into the sadness that lives underneath
    You can kill off all those feelings
    They’ll just turn to ghosts
    They will take over your house and become the host

    Oh how long?
    Oh how long?
    Oooh

    Well, the man of sorrows walked the shores of Galilee
    And his eyes were cast with joy towards the crystal sea
    Well, the shadows will be gone and all these bitter tears
    And my heart will hang on that until the dawn appears

    Oh how long
    Oh how long
    Oh you, you won’t let me go
    Oh no, no.
    Oh no you won’t let me go
    Oh no, oh no, you won’t let me go
    Oh no, oh no you won’t let me go
