Grand expressions of loyalty compose the heart of this driving Modern Rock ballad, arranged in the style of Snow Patrol's "Run" and "Chasing Cars", or Coldplay's "Fix You".

"Thunder And Light"
Ã,©2009 Capers Simmons (ASCAP)

I will be with you when permanent ends,
I will be there when unbreakable bends.
Tonight, I'll be with you when you close your eyes,
So smile; I'll stay until the last laugh cries.

And, if you should fall somewhere on the way,
Then I'll be the one you lean on for strength.
So, stand. I'll walk with you until you can run,
Again. I'll be there till the last lap's won.

Through the fire and the ice
In the thunder and the light,
As the darkness dyes the white,
And the blackness breaks the bright,
As the ocean ends the waves,
As the evening ends the days,
Like a hero holds you tight
In the thunder and the light.

When half of those who said they'd do or die choose
Death, and all the rest who fought for you lose
This, who'll be the last to fall at your shoes?
Guess. I'll fight until the fighting's through.

When the promises they made to you break
In two, these bullets that they've loaded and aimed
At you, I'll be the one to stand in their sights--
Shoot. I'll stay until the last shots fire.


How can I make you believe in me?
Here's your proof: I'll run into a building on fire
For you, and climb the burning staircase to find
Your room, and if there's no way out then I'll die,
Too. I will burn with you--

'Til the promise breaks the pledge
'Til the inside is the edge
I will hold you through the night
In the thunder and the light
