Lyrics

SWEETHEART, IF IT SEEMS DARK.
YOU'VE GOT TO HOLD ON TO
THESE MOMENTS OF JOY
IN THE FIRST PALE LIGHT OF MORNING,
YOUR CRY IS A WARNING.
WHAT WE DREAM TO FALL UPON
IS YOUR LIBERATION SONG.

CHORUS
YOU'VE BEEN CARRYING A LOAD FOR SO LONG NOW.
YOU'VE BEEN CARRYING A LOAD FOR SO LONG.
YOU WONDER WHAT IT FEELS LIKE,
YOU WONDER WHAT IT FEELS LIKE.
YOU'VE BEEN CARRYING A LOAD FOR SO LONG NOW.
YOU'VE BEEN CARRYING A LOAD FOR SO LONG.
YOU WONDER WHAT IT FEELS LIKE.
YOU WONDER WHAT IT FEELS LIKE.

WE BURN THESE FIRES FOR YOU,
WE TRY TO SCORCH WHAT YOU CAN'T DESTROY.
THE LIGHT GLOWS ON ALL OF OUR PAST CRIMES,
ON THESE MEMORIES OF JOY.
WILL A SMILE WISP ACROSS YOUR FACE,
IN A DISTANT TIME, IN A DISTANT PLACE.
WHAT WE DREAM TO FALL UPON,
IS YOUR LIBERATION SONG.

CHORUS

AND IN THE DAWNING,
YOUR MIND RETURNS TO THE NORM THE WIND IS YOUR SPIRIT NOW,
AND I FEEL ITS GROWING WARM.
I SEE LIGHTNING IN YOUR EYES, I HEAR THE CRASH BEFORE THE STORM,
AND I CANT HEAR A WORD THEY SAY FOR THE THUNDER OF WHAT THEY'VE BECOME.
