You Own The Only Light
Words and Music by Harry Chapin

I listen to the wind girl
As you sleep by my side
The weather's getting colder
So much harder now to hide

I confess I'm worried girl
'Cause as we fill up our days
For all the dreams we said we'd live
We watch them slip away

So I hold you like an anchor
I hold you in the night
You're all that I can count on
You own the only light

And I hold you like an answer
The only one that's right
For when I'm lost in darkness
You own the only light

You see I think we know we're loosing it
That easy dream is gone
Like everyone we fool ourselves
And say we're holding on

But I know I can't return again
You never can go home
Though with you here I still am lost
At least I'm not alone

And I hold you like an anchor
I hold you in the night
You're all that I can count on
You own the only light

And I hold you like an answer
The only one that's right
For when I'm lost in darkness
You own the only light

Oh don't you ever take away your light
Don't you ever leave me with your light
Don't you ever take away your light
Or else never let there be another night

We traveled hard to get here girl
But now our traveling's done
And of all the answers I have found
You're the only solid one

And I'm frightened how I need you now
But I can't wall in my heart
And with you is how I hope to end
And with you now I start

And I hold you like an anchor
I hold you in the night
You're all that I can count on
You own the only light

Yes I hold you like an answer
The only one that's right
For when I'm lost in darkness
You own the only light
