Written December 2012 in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting
First recorded as Aching Pine

lyrics

Some say the world is growing darker
But it seems to me it’s always been this way
Sounds like everybody has the answer
But their solutions are just more of the same

Another man proved the truth that we’re all capable
Of causing overwhelming harm
When he broke the rules we wish could be unbreakable
Now pain comes easy, and hope comes hard

But I still see the light
I still hear the angels sing
I believe that peace on earth means something
And we’re not alive for nothing
Even when the tears flood my eyes
And my spirit has run dry
I still feel the fire that burns by night
I still see the light

On these overcast nights, it’s hard to believe
That the yonder star is still out there
While the wise men go their separate ways
And some no longer even seem to care

But I still see the light
I still hear the angels sing
I believe that peace on earth means something
And we’re not alive for nothing
Even when the tears flood my eyes
And my spirit has run dry
I still feel the fire that burns by night
I still see the light

I still see the light
I still hear the angels sing
I believe that peace on earth means something
And we’re not alive for nothing
Even when the tears flood my eyes
And my spirit has run dry
I still feel the fire that burns by night
I still see the light
I still see the light
I still see the light
