spotlight lyrics – waifs

moon hangs in the night
a spotlight on the world
rising the lands,
moving the seas
and tonight from where
i stand on this hill
the spotlight’s on me
i am young long ago
i know not a thing
only that the sky is blue
or sometimes gray
flowers grow but they need rain
and when you’re a kid
you play games all day
anywhere you can

spotlight
i found you
i know where you are
i found you
i know where you are

formative years come along
some take the lead
and some fall behind
confusion untold
life can be so dramatic
but it was real at the time
laughing with friends
crying alone
all the false hearts and petty love
we leave school
to face the world
that seems fun for the world

but you tire of the same faces
and you dream of new places
it was a breath of aspiration
when my sister said
“let’s get out of here”
we left our town
we travelled ’round
and i went to find me

spotlight, spotlight
i found you
i know where you are
spotlight, spotlight
i found you
i know where you are

twenty something and the fog
has all but disappeared
with each day p*ssed
i learned something more
at all rate i’m thinking here
i must know it all
love, death, a little pain
has p*ssed through these walls

situations still arrive
where i can see
the way i behaved was unjustified
these are the times
i look inside
and i see
i’m a child after all

spotlight
i found you
i know who you are

spotlight
i found you
i know who you are

spotlight
i found you
i know who you are

spotlight, spotlight
i found you
i know where you are

spotlight, spotlight
i found you
i know where you are

spotlight, spotlight
i found you
i know where you are

i found you

moon hangs in the night
a spotlight on the world
