about

No aspiring guitar player growing up in the 70s could escape the influence of the guitar gods like Clapton, or bands like Cream, Deep Purple, Bad Company, etc. This cut explores several of those influences, with a great Jon Lord-inspired organ track by Matt MacKelvey.

lyrics

Lying on my back, gazing out your window,

Staring at the midnight sun,

Thinking ‘bout the past, worried ‘bout the future,

Dreaming ‘bout things that I have and have not done.

(Whoa, whoa, whoa) Put your arms around me,

(Whoa, whoa, whoa) Make love to me, girl;

(Whoa, whoa, whoa) Take me through the darkness,

I’m looking for some light up at the edge of the world.

The wind in the trees, the last of the fire,

The smell of the rain through your door,

Your wintergreen kisses full of desire,

Your hands on my face, so gentle and warm.

(Whoa, whoa, whoa) Put your arms around me,

(Whoa, whoa, whoa) Make love to me, girl;

(Whoa, whoa, whoa) Take me through the darkness,

I’m looking for some light up at the edge of the world.

Holding you close while you lay sleeping,

To shield you from a sudden surprise;

I’m tracing your name in the small of your back,

Wishing I could see this world through your loving eyes.

(Whoa, whoa, whoa) Put your arms around me,

(Whoa, whoa, whoa) Make love to me, girl;

(Whoa, whoa, whoa) Take me through the darkness,

I’m looking for some light up at the edge of the world.

(Whoa, whoa, whoa) Put your arms around me,

(Whoa, whoa, whoa) Make love to me, girl;

(Whoa, whoa, whoa) Take me through the darkness,

I’m looking for some light up at the edge of the world.

The light, the light, I’m looking for the light-the light, light, light, yeah!

The light, the light, I’m looking for the light-the light, light, light, yeah!

The light, the light, I’m looking for the light-the light, light, light, yeah!

The light, the light, I’m looking for the light,

I’m looking for some light up at the edge of the world.
