"In the Light" as written by and Jimmy Page John Paul Jones....
And if you feel that you can't go on
And your will's sinkin' low
Just believe and you can't go wrong
In the light you will find the road (You will find the road)

Hey, oh, did you ever believe that I could leave you
Standing out in the cold
Hey, babe, I know how it feels 'cause I have slipped through
To the very depths of my soul, yeah
Oh, baby, I just want to show you what I'd give you
It is from every bend in the road
Now listen to me
Oh, whoa-whoa, as I was and really would be for you, too, honey
As you would for me, oh, I would share your load
Let me share your load, ooh, let me share, share your load

And if you feel that you can't go on
In the light you will find the road

Hey, oh, though the winds of change may blow around you
But that will always be so
Wow-wow, wow-wow, when love is pain it can devour you
If you are never alone
I would share your load, I would share your load
Baby, let me, oh, let me

In the light
Everybody needs the light
In the light, in the light, in the light

Light, light, light, in the light
Light, light, light, in the light, oh, yeah
Light, light, light, in the light

    General CommentThis song is great. I love how the lyrics, the music, the feeling of it all express the same thought and emotion. It's talking about how down you can feel when things are tough. You feel that it's all going to crush you in despair. But they're saying that the light will help get you through. there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak. I like the line about wanting to "share your load". What it says is true. If you have good freinds or a good lover then everything doesn't seem so hard. Sometimes it helps to have others get you through the hard times. I always feel like I have Zeppelin to get me through and into the light. ;)

    General CommentNo the lyrics don't say it all.. At least not these ones printed here.

    What the hell is Plant singing at 7:07 after the chorus.. It sounds like "Shi mop a doo" or check out that dude.. or maybe he hates some chick's hair and is saying "Sure hate that doo"

    Led Zeppelin - In The Light


    ...And if you feel,

    ...And your will,
    sinking low...
    Just believe...
    and you can't go wrong
    In the light...
    you will find the road.
    You WILL find the road.

    Hey, ooh,
    Did you ever believe
    that I could leave you?
    Standing out in the cold?

    Hey, baby!
    I know how it feels,
    cause I done slipped through -
    To the very depths of my soul. Yeah.
    Oh woe.

    Baby, I just want to show you
    what I’d give you..
    cause it’s from every bend in the road
    Now, listen,
    Oh, woe-oh-woe
    as I was with me be put before you too
    Honey, as you would for me...
    oh, I would share your love,
    let me share load
    Ooh, let me show you -
    share you load



    Part 2




    And if you feel
    that you can't go on...
    In the light, you will find the road.

    Hey, oh, the winds of change my blow ‘round you
    But that will always be so - oh

    Woe oh! Woe oh!
    When love is pain -
    it can devour you...
    but, you are never alone

    I will share your love,
    I will share your load

    Baby, let me, oh let it -
    In the Mind...
    Everybody needs a light, oo yeah yeah, oh baby

    Everybody, everybody, everybody...sure enough - they do
    Light, light, light, in the light
    Light, light, light, End of Night

    oo yeah
    Light, light, light, in the light
    Light, light, light, in the light
    Light, light, light, in the light
