Ribbon Road lyrics


Love on the Losing Side

LOVE ON THE LOSING SIDE

Let there be light, let there be light
let there be light still shining
for now the night is drawing down
and there's no silver lining
it's hard to do
it's hard to say
but I know there's no other way
I know it hurts
I know you cry
it's loving on the losing side

Let there be hope, let there be hope
of better days inside you
for all around is dark and still
and no-one there to guide you
it's hard to feel
and make it real
but there's no other way to be
I know it hurts
I know you cry
it's loving on the losing side

Let there be light, let there be light
a candle in the window
for travellers weary of the night
who only feel the wind blow
it's hard to try
it's hard to know
but there's no other way to go
I know it hurts
I know you cry
it's loving on the losing side

Let there be arms, let there be arms
let there be arms around you
and put those arms around those arms
entwined where kindness found you
it's hard to give
it's hard to live
but there's no other way
I know it hurts
I know you cry
it's loving on the losing side

Let there be life, let there be life
let there be life still smiling
and though death's waiting at the door
remember, light is shining
it's hard to chose
it's hard to lose
but there's no other way (to go)
it's hard to leave
it's hard to grieve
but there's no other way to see
I know it hurts
I know you cry
it's loving on the losing side

I know it hurts
I know you cry
it's loving on the losing side
