Nerina Pallot I Saw The Light

I saw the light, I saw the light

Now ain’t that funny

I saw the light, I saw the light

And man it got me, got me to thinking

The way of the righteous, that’s a lie

One more myth to keep you down until you die

You make your bed, you lie in it

Don’t everybody?

You make your bed cause in the end

We all need somebody

But there’ll come a day

Out of the shadows we will shine

Every man a king in his own right

There’ll come a day

Turn our troubles into diamonds

I saw the light, I saw the light

I saw the light

And it ain’t no use holding back the truth

Like holding back the ocean with your hands

Oh I saw the light, I saw the light

I saw the light and now I understand

I saw the light, I saw the light

And I tell you something

You gotta fight, you gotta fight

If you do just one thing

Oh we may be no-one

Picking the locks on the doors of power

But brother you and me

We’re the mothers of invention

Oh we may be no-one

But we be nimble, we be quick

You and me

We’re the birth of imagination

And it ain’t no use holding back the truth

Like holding back the ocean with your hands

Oh I saw the light, I saw the light

I saw the light and now I understand

Now I understand
