Light in the distance

 

Should have been a winner

Should have had more sense

Should have made a better deal

With my circumstance

I’m still playing an unwinnable game

No use in waiting for anything to change

I' m still praying that what’s coming round the bend

Ain’t the light of an oncoming train

 

There's a light in the distance

Can you tell me what it means

Can't sort my fact from fiction

Truth is stranger than it seems

there’s nothing to believe in

no one left there to believe

If you can’t hold on to anything

Then just hold on to me

 

Be a go getter

You know you

Gotta give’em hell

Should have made a bigger deal

Should have made a better sell

I’m still looking for someone else to blame

For the choices nobody can explain

I can see their faces still pressed against the pane

In the light of an oncoming train

 

There s a light in the distance

Can you tell me what it means

Cant sort my fact from fiction

Truth is stranger than it seems

there’s nothing to believe in

no one left there to believe

If you can’t hold on to anything

Then just hold on to me

 

(chorus repeat)

 

There's a path of least resistance but I don't know where it leads,

if you can't hold on to anything

the just hold on

to me
