Lead vocals by Jay Esplana


You used to be the lonely one
You kept your distance
You never had the time for love
You never took no chances
You can call me anything
But you should call me lucky
‘Cause I became the only one to make it through
What would I see if I held you up to the light?
Our love is burning brighter why you being such fighter baby?
What would I see if I held you up?
Would your true colours show when the lights are low
If I held you up?
Summer days and endless nights
I kept you coming back for more
Draw the shades and hit the lights
but you were running out the door
You got me reading between the lines
Pull me in and just speak your mind
The walls you’re trying to hide behind are closing in
And I still wonder why I still try
