the light in me lyrics – brandon heath

“the light in me”

my life before you
i was a flame burning down
i was burning out

but you knew me better
for you there was never a doubt
not since you gave me life
something was different, i knew it the instant
you put the light in me

the spark, the shot to the heart
you are the hope that leads me out of the dark
you let your love shine down
so that the world could see
you put the light in me

the light, you put the light in me
the light, you put the light in me
the light, you put the light in me
the light, you put the light in me

you are the maker, you tell the sun when to rise
i’m just a house on a hill
but you make me brighter than all the stars in the sky
keep me from growing dim

’cause in your perfection, i’m just a reflection
so pull me closer to you
i’ll catch like a fire and i’ll hold you higher
’cause you put the light in me

this spark is shot to the heart
you are the hope that leads me out of the dark
you let your love shine down
so that the world could see
you put the light in me

the light, you put the light in me
the light, you put the light in me
the light, you put the light in me
the light, you put the light in me

i’ll raise it high, i’ll let it show
from the rooftops down to streets below
in day and night, you will be known
and all will see
you put the light in me
’cause you put the light in me

this spark is shot to the heart
you are the hope that leads me out of the dark
you let your love shine down
so that the world could see
you put the light in me

the light, you put the light in me
the light, you put the light in me
the light, you put the light in me
the light, you put the light in me
