Sarah McLachlan - Turn the Lights Down Low Lyrics

Night falls heavy like an iron fist
The silence taut and frail
I weigh the depths of love and terror
In this test I cannot fail
'Cause there’s no map to guide the human heart
Down roads we’ve never been
Sometimes I feel I’m running blind but I’m trying

So turn the lights down low
Let the night come easy
Take my hand won’t you let me in
'Cause when the world comes crashing down inside your head
I’ll be right here right here for you

Words fall heavy out of tired mouths
Resigned to rage and roar
I see behind your eyes the tempest rising
And I can’t reach your shore
When all my good intentions fall apart
And I wind up on my knees
There’s nothing gained from being right but I’m trying

So turn the lights down low
Let the night come easy
Take my hand won’t you let me in
'Cause when the world comes crashing down inside your head
I’ll be right here, right here for you

So turn the lights down low
Let the night come easy
Take my hand won’t you let me in
'Cause when the world comes crashing down inside your head
I’ll be right here, I’ll be right here for you

Take my hand won’t you let me in
'Cause when the world comes crashing down inside your head
I’ll be right here, I’ll be right here waiting
Right here for you
