Steal the Light
The Cat Empire Lyrics


Sing now muse I won't be scared
She's wearing flowers not snakes up in her hair tonight
And love we've been around before
We washed up on the old shore but it's new tonight

'It's only light' she said
'But we are liars to be free'
Ooh ooh ooh we'll steal the light to see

The hour falls we fall to dance
Now sirens and the marching bands sing
'It's nothing but chance tonight'
The billion ones and many few
And everyone I never new they're here tonight

'It's only light' we said
But we are liars to be free
Ooh ooh ooh we'll steal the light to see

What if I'm lonely?
What if the skies should fall and disappear?
For one night only
Open your eyes and run into the clear
So if I may, what if I say
'It's good to have you here!'

She said 'If you lead I'll come along
And if you need me there I'll sing your song tonight
And all that glows and all that shines
And all we leave behind will keep them warm tonight'

'It's only light' I said
But we are liars to be free
Ooh ooh ooh we'll steal the light to see

What if I'm lonely?
What if the skies should fall and disappear?
For one night only
Open your eyes and run into the clear
I love you only
Until the skies fall down and disappear
So if I may, what if I say
'It's good to have you here!'
Oh oh oh

I still remember when I first saw you guys. I was away from home the first time in my life and unsure. You all took your time and made me so happy and way less homesick. I will always have a soft spot for you, always.

Aaditya Suresh

For all of you that haven't seen them live yet, you have to. They are unreal, so much fun!

From time to time, I come back to this video to remind me that there is good music out there. I first listened to this when I was 16 in 2014 because for some reason we have an Australian channel here in the Philippines and every 3 AM, Rage was on and this was featured there once. I fell in love with this song since.
