The Secret Of Light Alex Vann, July 2012
I believe there’s a light that shines in everyone
I feel wonder in my heart
I know that a time will come for us to shine
We will find comfort in the dark

Don’t cry my pretty one
Don’t curse the rain
See all that you have done
Your light remains

(play verse chords x 2 with low octave root in right hand)
I hear silence in a crowded room
I feel calm before a storm
You’ve sailed to the corners of the world
I say ‘there’s no place like home’

Don’t cry my pretty one
Don’t curse the rain
See all that you’ve become
Your light remains

It’s not easy to let go – we just sit and curse the dark
Some day you will know that the secret of light within
Lies in your heart

Piano solo (verse chords and melody)
M8 repeat
Faster tempo and major key:
A E D A chords x2 then sing
Let you go, Love will never let you go x 4
Fast chords again to fade
