"Lover of the Light" as written by Marcus Oliver Johnstone Mumford, Edward James Milton Dwane, Benjamin Walter David Lovett and Winston Aubrey Aladar Marshall....
In the middle of the night, I may watch you go
There'll be no value in the strength of walls that I have grown
There'll be no comfort in the shade of the shadows thrown
But I'd be yours if you'd be mine

Stretch out my life and pick the seams out
Take what you like, but close my ears and eyes
Watch me stumble over and over

I have done wrong, you build your tower
But call me home and I will build a throne
And wash my eyes out never again

But love the one you hold
And I'll be your goal
To have and to hold
A lover of the light

Skin too tight and eyes like marbles
You spin me high, so watch me as I glide
Before I tumble homeward, homeward

I know I tried, I was not stable
Flawed by pride, I miss my sanguine eyes
So hold my hands up, breathe in and breathe out

So love the one you hold
And I'll be your goal
To have and to hold
A lover of the light

And in the middle of the night, I may watch you go
There'll be no value in the strength of walls that I have grown
There'll be no comfort in the shade of the shadows thrown
You may not trust the promises of the change I'll show
But I'd be yours if you'd be mine

So love the one you hold
And I will be your goal
To have and to hold
A lover of the light

So love the one you hold
And I will be your goal
To have and to hold
A lover of the light

    General Commentwell this song speaks to me on many levels - on a personal level it speaks of one person waking up to a new level inside of himself opening up to a new level of love and contentment and to how a relationship is going and realising many things have been said/been bad and can see the relationship continuing it's destructive path and how each person locks their selves further and further away..... and yet it's calling out to the other and each as one to call the relationship forward to a new level where each is a king and a queen both creating thrones for each in their love and gratitude for each other further empowering each in an upward spiral, but the other partner looks on in disbelief not trusting that the change she see's is something lasting continuing on her same path of destruction unravelling him each time and detroyiong him over and over and yet he calls her on ... be mine and i'll be yours
