closer to the light lyrics – bruce cockburn

there you go
swimming deeper into mystery
here i remain
only seeing where you used to be
stared at the ceiling
’til my ears filled up with tears
never got to know you
and suddenly you’re out of here

gone from mystery into mystery
gone from daylight into light
another step deeper
into darkness
closer to the light

walked outside
summer moon was nearly down
mist on the fields
holy stillness all around
death’s no stranger
no stranger than the life i’ve seen
still i cried
still i begged to get you back again

gone from mystery into mystery
gone from daylight into light
another step deeper
into darkness
closer to the light
