about

...This song is about being there for someone else through an act of love that brings a sense of light and hope in a moment of freedom.

lyrics

A Little Light

You keep on getting shipwrecked
crushed underneath the wave
It only lasts a moment
but it winds you all the same
Step back from the canvas
to bring it back into line
Help is at hand
just put yours in mine

Spread a little love
and shed a little light
Flick the switch and ditch the doubt
and leave it with the night

You’ve packed your head full of dreams
that make you smile in the night
But in the morning when you wake
they disappear with the light
So you grab at a moment’s freedom
to create a head space
Riding on your bike with the wind
lapping like a dog at your face

Learn to spread a little love
and shed a little light
Flick the switch and ditch the doubt
and leave it with the night
