Sara Bareilles – Ghost Light Lyrics


If the ghost light is burning
We’ll invite something in
Let the dark free her secrets
That she keeps swallowing
Let her borrow my voice now
What if darkness could sing? Won’t you, you, you? Won’t you, you, you? If the veil could be lifted
What if shadows were seen? Let them borrow my voice now
What if shadows could speak? [Chorus]
What I wouldn’t give if, for just one night
I could shine so you would see me
But all I’ve ever been is the absence of the light
I don’t shine, no one sees me
So won’t you, you, you? [Chorus]
What I wouldn’t give if, for just one night
I could shine so you’d see me
But all I’ve ever been is the absence of the light
I don’t shine, no one sees me
So won’t you, you, you? Could they offer their wisdom? [Verse 1]
What if I leave the light on
So the dark has a friend? [Outro]
What I wouldn’t give if, for just one night
I could shine so you’d see me
What I wouldn’t give if, for just one night
I could shine so you’d see me Won’t you, you, you? Won’t you, you, you? Would they feel some relief? [Pre-Chorus]
What would the dark say, if she could? [Verse 2]
What if I leave the light on
So the darkness could speak?
