Torches Lyrics - Rise Against

Review The Song (10)



On clearer days I can see the lights from my bedroom door,
On windy nights I can smell the lake as it drifts to me from the shore
The traffic lights silently change a thousand times a day
But I'm still waiting, yeah, and I'm still waiting

And if my hand could block the sun,
Would we ever wake up?
And if I turned back all these clocks,
Would that be time enough?

I can't remember exactly when this longing began
But I know it wasn't before the day you touched my hand,
Laugh and shout in blissful daze and numbers are exchanged,
But I'm still waiting, yeah, and I'm still waiting

And if my hand could block the sun,
Would we ever wake up?
And if I turned back all these clocks,
Would that be time enough?

So put your hands where I can see them,
And shut your mouth, I know who you are,
In a world void of feeling or heart
I know that we are the torches in the dark

Let's break this down, let's make this count,
Let's leave this one-horse town, no better time than now
[repeat x2]

The angels dance like feathers float, they're here to see and to be seen,
The clock strikes two, the music slows and each one slowly dons their wings,
Once outside they all pair off and hand in hand they leave
But I'm still waiting, yeah, and I'm still waiting

And if my hand could block the sun,
Would we ever wake up?
And if I turned back all these clocks,
Would that be time enough?
Will we ever wake up?

"they all pair off and hand in hand they leave..." | Reviewer: nukafire | 5/15/11

This has to be on par with the song Swing Life Away for most touching song by these guys.
I have every song that they have made and I am proud to say that I pre-ordered the album Endgame.
unfortunately the album only had a few songs i like on it. such as Satellite, Broken Mirrors, Endgame, and Lanterns.



Torches..touches me | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/14/11

I over looked this song until one day I really stopes and listened the part about angels gave me the chills when I heard it for the first time it's the one song that in my interpretation of it I can dealer to the most...I love thus song



Amazing! :) | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/3/10

WOW. so deep and awesome. best band ever!



A Great (sadly unkwown) song | Reviewer: Javier | 3/18/10

This song if one of the best songs EVER made by RA. My favorite songs are this one, Survive, Rumors Of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exagerated, Survive and But Tonight We Dance. Oh, and the original version of Everchanging. Give'em a chance!



im with MuzikChik | Reviewer: JustMe | 10/22/09

i like alot of bands buthis is the only one that i can honestly say "i like all there songs", lol, listen to them pretty much 90% of my free time, and i love the way that Tim sings about things we all go through in life so his songs are easy to relate too



Rise Against rock my socks =D | Reviewer: MuzikChik | 3/29/09

You can be a 'True' Rise Against fan, and disagree with the contention that RPM is their best album!
BUT A true Rise Against fan definitely would have heard of the album ^.^
I love this song =D
I pretty much love all RA songs, Im yet to hear them release a bad one!



true rise against | Reviewer: CJ C | 11/6/08

well first off a true rise against fan would tell you RPM is one of their greatest albums and i highly doubt any long time rise against fan wouldn't know about torches, my friend who cant even name all their knows about this song, altogether though sick song, not the best off RPM but still damn good



This is my favorite song | Reviewer: Ben S | 10/21/07

The lyrics are just amazing. I can't believe it only has two comments (3 now). This isn't my favorite album by them, but this is an amazing song. I'm glad I found it while looking around for new music one day.



awesome | Reviewer: Luis Navarro | 6/16/07

I know what you mean this is a great song it should get more credit, revolutions per minute is the best rise against album in my opinion go get it !



Great song- not widely known | Reviewer: Andrew C | 5/2/07

This is definitely a great song. I wonder why nobody knows about it? It's nowhere, and if you ask Rise Against fans about it, they stare blankly.

Spread the word about this song! It's great!
