Lyrics:

Verse
too many lights out
even today, the wind extinguished another flame
how can we see if there is no light?
day by day
the house is losing its warmth
coldness is smiling
how will we warm ourselves without the fire
even the stars fall as rain
pouring out the windows of our hearts
we can’t travel if the stars are falling
the night is eating the children of the sun
what will become of us
if she can’t be satisfied?

Chorus
help
the light is off
it is dark
we need to see
send some lights

Verse
hope took a boat
and never came back
light a fire
so we can guide it home
hurry
saw some wood
rub some stones
set it alight

Chorus
help
the light is off
it is dark
we need to see
send some lights
turn on the light
send us some lights
before mine goes out
