The Morning Light

lyrics

There's a kid standin next to a van that he drove into an electric pole
There's the house that he grew up in and the family that he never told
All the voices he's hearin

They say our freedom's an illusion and we're usin an escapist route
"A weary soul and a wandering heart's no excuse for you to run your mouth!"
All this time I've been thinkin
Through the ground I've been sinkin in

Let's run out of town, and make it the long way!
I've been locked inside just short of the highway
Drive all night
I want my heart to burn in the morning light

I dont want your road of gold, I wanna see you here tonight
I don't wanna know what I know, I wanna feel it in the light
I dont want your road of gold, I wanna see you here tonight
I don't wanna know what I know, I wanna feel it in the light
Let's run out of town, and make it the long way!
I've been locked inside just short of the highway
Drive all night
I want my heart to burn in the morning light

Midnight sky
No reply
Midnight sky
No reply
It's just a midnight sky
No reply
Midnight sky
Open eyes
Midnight sky
No more lies

O! I want my heart to burn in the morning light!
O! I want my eyes to see in the morning light!
O! I want my heart to burn in the morning light!
O! I wanna be set free!
