To See the Light

1) I tried to turn and run; I tried to turn and hide,
but then you found me.
I didn?t want to know; I didn?t know I cared
that you had missed me.

Chorus: I need to see your Light
I need to see your Light
and why that happens I can?t say.
I need to hold you near
I need to hold you near
because there is no other way.

2) I need to see your smile; I need to see your smile.
come on and show me
Don?t keep me waiting, no; don?t keep waiting, no;
I need to know you.

Repeat Chorus.

3) I need to hear your voice, I need to hear your voice;
to hear you singing
A voice that holds me near, the Light that is so dear.
Come on and show me.
