"Follow The Light" as written by and Francis Healy....
Nobody really knows
Where they're supposed to go
Hiding behind a wall
Afraid that they'll lose it all

But it's alright
Just follow the light
And don't be afraid of the dark
In the moonlight
You'll dance till you fall
And always be here in my heart

But nobody wants to know
'cos nobody even cares
Everyone's on the make
Yeah and everyone's out for themselves

Me I'm on the longest road
Where everything's overload
But I've got my heart and soul
So don't throw me overboard

'cos it's alright
Just follow the light
And don't be afraid of the dark
In the moonlight
You'll dance till you fall
And always be here in my heart

'cos it's alright
Just follow the light
And don't be afraid of the dark
In the moonlight
You'll dance till you fall
And always be here in my heart

'cos it's alright, alright now
And you're alright
Yeah we're alright now

    General CommentI don't think this song necessarily has anything to do with Jesus...but if you take it that way that's fine. I think they left it quite open to what your 'light' could be.

    General CommentI agree, I think the "light" just refers to the "right" solution. It might be Jesus, but I don't think it specifically means that...

    General CommentI think the light is happiness and generally being at peace with yourself. "Just follow the light
    And don't be afraid of the dark"
    The dark is whenever things go wrong or you start to doubt and lose faith, but if you follow the light, you'll always eventually find your way back somehow.

    General CommentLDG you summed it up pretty well. I cant believe only 7 of us have commented on this song! Its definately my favourite Travis song, it has really uplifting lyrics, but at the same time i find it quite melancholy. Its totally beautiful though, the chorus makes me cry. Everyone wants someone in their life to sing this to them.

    \'Cos it\'s alright
    Just follow the light
    And don\'t be afraid of the dark
    In the moonlight
    You\'ll dance till you fall
    And always be here in my heart

    To me it says, whatever happens, I\'ll always be thinking of you and you\'ll always be in my heart, everything will be ok, just trust your intuition and do what feels right.

    General CommentIt's about overcoming our uncertainties and our anxiety about the future and just being happy. To me, the light is happiness and having no fear. Don't worry and do what makes you happy. Carpe diem!
