lyrics

This may be the night
That will close us over
But hold on tight
The morning is closer
The dawn always grows out of darkness
But not for the ones who saw the sun going down

We are the lanterns, oh my friend
We’ll keep on burning til the end
Carry the light to the darkness and the wind
We are the lanterns, my friend

This may be the night
That will hold us closer
But hold on tight
The morning is closer
The dawn always grows out of darkness
But not for the ones who saw the sun go down

We are the lanterns, my friend
We’ll keeping burning til the end
Cradle the light to the darkness
We are the lanterns, my friend
We are the lanterns, oh my friend
