The Bacon Brothers Light the Way Lyrics

Last updated:

Written by Kevin Bacon

"It's about having the strength to re-define your life's work. A follow-up to 'Guess Again.'" KB

Emma Rae's riding on a north-bound train
Spilling all that pain
On the plains of Dover
Emma Rae's crying from a hot cell phone
She said she never felt so alone
This time the dream is over

Surely this is her darkest hour
I've even heard her talk about a higher power
Deep in her heart comes a tiny voice
And it says "hold on momma,
'Cause you've got one last choice"

Bring your dreams down to the river
And let the water wash all your dreams away
When the night comes, it will deliver
Through the darkness, your heart is gonna light the way

Old man standing on a soap box
He's wearing wool socks
On the hottest day all year
Old man preachin' to the handful
With a head full
He says "the end is surely near"
Now, who among you even cares?
They're turnin' circles into squares
But deep in his heart comes a tired voice
And it says "hold on daddy,
You've got one last choice"

Bring your dreams down to the river
And let the water wash all your dreams away
When the night comes, it will deliver
Through the darkness, your heart is gonna light the way
Light the way, light the way
Through the darkness, your heart is gonna light the way

Light the way, oh light the way
Through the darkness, your heart is gonna light the way
