lyrics

A TRICK OF THE LIGHT

I am blinded by your light dear
Hold me close and shade my eyes
'Cause I can't see you, or not clearly
Are you merely a trick of the light?

I was looking for a pathway out of here
Distracted by the light upon your hair
I was only passing through now must I stay
Now I've found you
'Cause I...I...

I am blinded by your light dear
Hold me close and shade my eyes
'Cause I can't see you, or not clearly
Are you merely a trick of the light?

Oh so careless to fall so deeply
Oh so mindless, won't you stop me
'Cause I am the biggest fool you ever saw
The biggest fool who ever loved you

I was looking for a pathway out of here
Distracted by the light upon your hair
I was only passing through now must I stay
Now I've found you
'Cause I...I...

I am blinded by your light dear
Hold me close and shade my eyes
'Cause I can't see you, or not clearly
Are you merely a trick of the light?
