Chase The Night Away

Lyricist: Tim Rice-Oxley, Tom Chaplin, Richard Hughes & Jesse Quin    Composer: Tim Rice-Oxley, Tom Chaplin, Richard Hughes & Jesse Quin

You can shape a dying day
Into something better
We can hold the ghosts at bay
Build something together
You can see the beauty in
A dirty, rain-lashed street
Or a plan that goes nowhere
You can make this town feel kind
Though the buildings cry
But you don't belong, don’t belong

You can chase the night away
Guess I'm trying to say
You heal me like the light of day
You can keep me searching on
You say it won't be long
’Til all the pain we felt is gone
It won't be long

Sorry I'm distracted by
Things that you can't help with
Aloneness you can't recognise
Or know unless you've felt it
Show me how to love again
Let the branches bend
Life's rolling on, rolling on

You can chase the night away
Guess I'm trying to say
You heal me like the light of day
You can keep me searching on
You say it won’t be long
’Til all the pain we felt is gone
It won't be long

’Til your mind stops reeling
It won't be long
'Til regret surrenders
Its hold and the scars start healing
Falling off a cliff and still wondering
Where the ground has gone
Something in your faith
It keeps me searching on, searching on

You can chase the night away
Guess I'm trying to say
You heal me like the light of day
You can keep me searching on
You say it won’t be long
'Til all the pain we felt is gone
It won't be long

Guess I'm trying to say
You heal me like the light of day
You can keep me searching on
You say it won't be long
'Til all the pain we felt is gone
It won't be long
