​Here Is What Is

This song is by Daniel Lanois and appears on the album Here Is What Is (2007).

I came here on a brave driving wheel
Now I'm wearing these heavy arms of steel
Don't know what is light and what is shadow
I kind of thought I did but I guess I don't know

Here is what is, here is what is
Smile a little to your sweetheart
Here is what is, here is what is
Don't you go walking too long in the dark

I ran for a minute then the city took me back
The railway of promises was a broken track
Through your eyes I can see
That maybe I don't need to be what I thought I should be

Here is what is, here is what is
Spiral down to your sweetheart
Here is what is, here is what is
Don't you go walking too long in the dark

Ice falls on me but I feel no cold
You're like a fleece, like a new soul
I'm standing on the ledge not fearing the fall
Your salvation teaches all

Here is what is, here is what is
Spiral down to your sweetheart
Here is what is, here is what is
Don't you go walking too long in the dark

Here is what is, here is what is
Spiral down to your sweetheart
Here is what is, here is what is
Don't you go walking too long in the dark
