“And the smile on your face will be visible from space, I guarantee…”

History

This was one of those songs that came together in pieces. I have little recording snippet from at least 10 years ago, with just the melody for ‘hold on, love is coming’, and then another with that lyric, and then one with the chorus leading up to it. I think once I had that line I basically had the song, but that’s still no guarantee that it will work. This is one of those songs which I haven’t played live much, and often forget I ever wrote, but having come back to it I think it’s definitely one of the better songs I’ve written. It was pure wishful thinking at the time. But I guess Love really was running…

Lyrics

It’s nearly over
And it’s been so hard
But it’s nearly over
Take my word

You’ll need your courage
There’s one last tunnel
There’s one more chest-wound
To be incurred

When you cry out
Because it’s burning
When you cry out and the world echoes empty
And your stomach is so heavy and so twisted and you’re shaken like a tree
In a hurricane

—————————————–
And you’re lost
And alone
With just a candle, a million miles from home
And the flame burns down
Till the flame might drown
And the last light fade away
But hold on
Love is coming
It’ll be okay
—————————————–

They’ve got you shackled
On the platform
Amongst the shouting
Watch for me

For I’ll be there
As that sweet chariot
Sends them running
Sets you free

And you’ll cry out
For you’ll be burning
Burning brighter than you ever burnt before
And the smile on your face will be visible from space, I guarantee
Everything will change

—————————————–
So now you’re lost
And alone
With just a candle, a million miles from home
And the flame burns down
Till the flame might drown
And the last light fade away
But hold on
Love is coming
It’ll be okay
—————————————–

And I know
Your grip is slipping
Why would you hold on
Another day?
But you should know that
Love is running
It got your message
And now it’s running
As fast as it can
To come and save you
Save you…

And you will fall
Into the arms
Of impossible, impenetrable, fickle, brutal
Beautiful Love

Hold on
Love is coming
It will be okay
