Lyrics

A Light Ahead © 2003 Kaplan

She looks so pretty when she cries
So I let her.
She doesn’t even know I’m there
I watch her sift through the trash for liquor
I thought of that all on my own.

She talks a lot to herself but I listen.
I’m always somewhere in her head.
She hopes to one day marry a pigeon.
Collecting breadcrumbs and birthdays.

God told a lie again
This you would have me believe
There is a light ahead
This I would have you believe

She looks so helpless dangling
Tied to my strings
She teeters on the edge
I never question anger from above
Or acid rain as it eats the earth.

The sound of cooing is roaring machinery
I’m almost ready to push
I hope to one day love like a pigeon
Collecting breadcrumbs and birthdays.

God told a lie again
This you would have me believe
There is a light ahead
This I would have you believe

Go on say it, reach out take it
One hand on me, one will in me
I can feel it, cold but steely
One hand on me, one will in me

God told a lie again
This you would have me believe
There is a light ahead
This I would have you believe
