Track Name: Light #1
One day the sun will set over and over again
Today the sun, the only way its going is up
Someday the light, it might never begin
On that day we know we'll find
We'll find the light within

And so we'll look up, look up, look up
The light shining in our eyes
And so we'll become, become, become
A memory that never dies

One day the stars, they'll get further away
But tonight they're shining and they're here to stay
Someday the universe will collapse on itself
But today there's nothing that we can do to help

And so we'll look up, look up, look up
The light shining in our eyes
And so we'll become, become, become
A memory that never dies

And so we'll look up, look up, look up
The light shining in our eyes
And so we'll become, become, become
A memory that never dies
Track Name: Light #2
We must run
There's nowhere here for us
Away from the guns
The war and the violence
Towards the light
The endless horizon, the endless horizon, the endless horizon
Our family and friends
Not a part of this war
So please make this end
We'll show you the door
A new life ahead
We can't run anymore, run anymore, run anymore

There's always time
For people like us
To build a new life
A life we can trust
We'll follow the light
It's easy to find
We'll leave it behind
We won't have to hide

There's always time
For people like us
To build a new life
A life we can trust
We'll follow the light
It's easy to find
We'll leave it behind
We won't have to hide

The sunset it glows
Whilst the country it sings
Whilst back at home
No one did win
So with peace and hope
A new world begins, a new world begins, a new world begins

There's always time
For people like us
To build a new life
A life we can trust
We'll follow the light
It's easy to find
We'll leave it behind
We won't have to hide

There's always time
For people like us
To build a new life
A life we can trust
We'll follow the light
It's easy to find
We'll leave it behind
We won't have to hide

There's always time
For people like us
To build a new life
A life we can trust
We'll follow the light
It's easy to find
We'll leave it behind
We won't have to hide

There's always time
For people like us
To build a new life
A life we can trust
We'll follow the light
It's easy to find
We'll leave it behind
We won't have to hide
Track Name: Light #3
Community living in the dark
Only glowing plants for light
We dream of going far away
But Earth is out of sight
Someone thinks we should cross the mountains
But only darkness they'll find
If family tries to follow them
It'll be suicide

We need the light
We need the light
We need the light that Planet Earth can provide
Eden is too dark
Eden is too dark
Eden is too dark oh maybe we'll leave at last

We need the light
We need the light
We need the light that Planet Earth can provide
Eden is too dark
Eden is too dark
Eden is too dark oh maybe we'll leave at last

We are running out of food
If we don't move we'll die
We need to wait in the clearing
The Companions will arrive
But what if they never come for us?
What if we're here alone?
Don't think like that just hang on
One day we'll go home

We need the light
We need the light
We need the light that Planet Earth can provide
Eden is too dark
Eden is too dark
Eden is too dark oh maybe we'll leave at last

We need the light
We need the light
We need the light that Planet Earth can provide
Eden is too dark
Eden is too dark
Eden is too dark oh maybe we'll leave at last

Ooooooohhhh
Ooooooohhhh
Ooooooohhhh
Ooooooohhhh
Ooooooohhhh
Ooooooohhhh
Ooooooohhhh
Ooooooohhhh

We need the light
We need the light
We need the light that Planet Earth can provide
Eden is too dark
Eden is too dark
Eden is too dark oh maybe we'll leave at last

We need the light
We need the light
We need the light that Planet Earth can provide
Eden is too dark
Eden is too dark
Eden is too dark oh maybe we'll leave at last
