Sweetness And Light

This song is by Portastatic and appears on the album Be Still Please (2006) and on the compilation Some Small Things You Can't Defend (2006).

Oh look what just came rolling down
This morning's face
Some shining tears from sleepy eyes
Won't go to waste

I've got a lucite frame
Been filling up with rain
In red with one wax pencil
We mark the time and date
I'm gonna turn this truck around
When we run out of space

You say "Why can't you say more hopeful things
And skies that go from gray to blue"
I know my voice is like a broken saw
I know my voice is like a tightening screw
If I could write a song of sweetness and light for you
Oh honey, that's just the first thing that I would do
Oh, I would too

There is a temperature
Where even we must take the armor off
A point at which the carapace can just dissolve
And while the river rises cool and clear
Around our knees
We'll watch while clouds that covered us
Are broken by the breeze

You say "Why can't you say more hopeful things
And skies that go from gray to blue"
I know my voice is like a broken saw
I know my voice is like a sickly shrew
If I could sing a song of sweetness and light for you
Oh honey, that's just the first thing that I would do
Yeah, I would too

Oh yeah, I would too
