Episode 164: Let There Be Light

/ March 23, 2021/ Barenaked ABCs/ 0 comments

We discussed a song about drug dealers at a convenience store last week. This week we take a more positive view on life, as Mil helps us to reflect on the uplifting message from Kevin on this B-side in an era when B-sides no longer exist.

The lyrics:

You’re looking down at the ground

Your plans are in tatters

There’s no time to lose

You’ve got to choose what really matters
(chorus)

Let there be light in your life again

Let there be light in your life again

Your rotten luck

I mean really what were the chances

Let’s make no sound

Let’s lie on the ground Look up through the branches
(chorus)

And Let there be light in your life again
Let there be light in your life again

(Bridge)

If your heart is heavy, and you’re alone

Feelin’ lost in the honeycomb (you ate a whole box of honeycombs)

you can call me, you can call me, you can call me, I’ll be (home?)I am at home

There’s so much darkness,

So much bizarreness and commotion

Your shipwrecked dream may be at the bottom of the ocean
Cheap souvenirs. Won’t you help me clear out all of this clutter

Too many tears for too many years

Why lose another?
(chorus)

Let there be light in your life again

Let there be light in your life again
Let there be light in your life again (in your life)
Let there be light in your life again
