"All Your Light (Times Like These)" as written by and John Baldwin Gourley....
I'm just a shadow of a bigger man
Glowing brighter with each year I am
I was standing on a mountain
Just looking down (on you, on you)

It's like my daddy said
"You gotta use your head
My body won't work for nobody but me, son"
Yeah, no one said that I aim to please

All your light can't save me
All your light, all your light can't save me
I won't wait, though my time may come
I can't wait, I can't wait, for my time to come
"My body won't work for nobody but me, son"

As a boy, I had it figured out
There are things that you can't live without
But money, it's sad but true, would surely top that list
And your rules (your rules), your rules, well they would not be missed

And I became
Whole again
'Cause no one said, no one said, no one said
There'd be times like these

I said all your light can't save me
All your light, all your light can't save me
I won't wait, though my time may come
I can't wait, I can't wait, for my time to come

"My body won't work for nobody but me, son"
No one said there'd be times like these
"My body won't work for nobody but me, son"
No one said there'd be times like these
"My body won't work for nobody but me, son"
No one said there'd be times like these
"My body won't work for nobody but me, son"
Well, no one said there'd be times like these

I was licking flames when I broke your reins
Still, no one said, no one said, no one said it'd be suicide

All your light can't save me
All your light, all your light can't save me
I won't wait, though my time may come
I can't wait, I can't wait, for my time to come

"My body won't work for nobody but me, son"
No one said there'd be times like these
"My body won't work for nobody but me, son"
No one said there'd be times like these

All your light can't save me
All your light, all your light can't save me
I won't wait, though my time may come
I can't wait, I can't wait, for my time to come

All your light can't save me ("My body won't work for nobody but me, son")
All your light, all your light can't save me
I won't wait, though my time may come ("My body won't work for nobody but me, son")
I can't wait, I can't wait, for my time to come

All your light can't save me
All your light, all your light can't save me
I won't wait, though my time may come
I can't wait, I can't wait, for my time to come

    General Commenti'm just the shadow of a bigger man
    glowing brighter with each year i am
    i was standing on a mountain
    just looking down (on you on you)

    it's like my daddy said
    "you gotta use your head" (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)
    yeah, no one said that i aim to please


    all your light can't save me
    all your light, all your light can't save me
    i won't wait though my time may come
    i can't wait, i can't wait
    my time may come (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)

    as a boy i had it figured out
    there are things that you cant live without
    but money, it's sad but true, would surely top that list
    and your rules your rules, well they would not be missed
    well i became
    whole again
    cause no one said no one said no one said
    there'd be times like these

    i said, all your light can't save me
    all your light, all your light can't save me
    i won't wait though my time may come
    i can't wait, i can't wait
    my time may come

    (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)
    no one said there'd be times like these
    (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)
    no one said there'd be times like these
    (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)
    no one said there'd be times like these
    (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)
    well, no one said there'd be times like these

    i was licking flames, when i broke your reins
    still, no one said no one said no one said it'd be suicide

    all your light can't save me
    all your light, all your light can't save me
    i won't wait though my time may come
    i can't wait, i can't wait
    my time may come

    (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)
    no one said there'd be times like these
    (my body won't work for nobody but me, son)
    no one said there'd be times like these

    (jam)

    all your light can't save me
    all your light, all your light can't save me
    i won't wait though my time may come
    i can't wait, i can't wait
    my time may come
    (repeat)
