Joy Formidable, The - The Greatest Light Is The Greatest Shade Lyrics




A glass, a view, a mirror, which one
Distracts like open windows in the gusts
A calm day will come
A calm day will

This dream is, this dream is
This dream is in a telescope now
This dream is, this dream is
This dream is, this dream is
This dream is in a telescope now
This dream is, this dream is

Fever in bedtime covers go unknown
This fright, it grows and misses, sinks and floats
A calm day will come, my calm day will

This dream is, this dream is
This dream is in a telescope now
This dream is, this dream is
This dream is, this dream is
This dream is in a telescope now
This dream is, this dream is

A calm day will come

Fever in bedtime, covers go unknown
Until two eyes out of the darkness bring hope close

This childish heart won't wait
It dances keeps me awake to think on, to think on
You're the greatest light, the greatest shade
It means that I can be happy for you, happy for you

Happy for you, happy for you, happy for you
Happy for you, happy for you, happy for you
Happy for you, happy for you, happy for you
Happy for you, happy for you, happy for you
Happy for you, happy for you, happy for you
Happy for you, happy for you, happy for you
Happy for you, happy for you, happy, happy for you

    A glass, a view, a mirror, which one
     Distracts like open windows in the gusts
     A calm day will come
     A calm day will This dream is, this dream is
     This dream is in a telescope now
     This dream is, this dream is
     This dream is, this dream is
     This dream is in a telescope now
     This dream is, this dream is Fever in bedtime covers go unknown
     This fright, it grows and misses, sinks and floats
     A calm day will come, my calm day will This dream is, this dream is
     This dream is in a telescope now
     This dream is, this dream is
     This dream is, this dream is
     This dream is in a telescope now
     This dream is, this dream is A calm day will come Fever in bedtime, covers go unknown
     Until two eyes out of the darkness bring hope close This childish heart won't wait
     It dances keeps me awake to think on, to think on
     You're the greatest light, the greatest shade
     It means that I can be happy for you, happy for you Happy for you, happy for you, happy for you
     Happy for you, happy for you, happy for you
     Happy for you, happy for you, happy for you
     Happy for you, happy for you, happy for you
     Happy for you, happy for you, happy for you
     Happy for you, happy for you, happy for you
     Happy for you, happy for you, happy, happy for you
