about

Next up is Stand in Light/I Could Be Forgiven (You Decide). The guitar hooks offer the ultimate ear candy. Especially when combined with one of Denney’s best vocal performances to date. To top things off, the harmonium is a welcome addition to the melting pot.

lyrics

Pick your spot
Let the light shine down
Let the light shine down
From the top of a mountain

Gentle soul
Now you’re in my hands
Now you’re in my hands
Till your mind starts to wonder…

If I could be forgiven
I could be forgotten
I could be the one who remembers your name
There could be a heaven
But it may be hidden
To those who have broken a heart
For the hope of a chance at tomorrow

It’s your time
When the river flows
And the cold wind blows
It will call with a whisper

I could be forgiven
(Try harder…)
I could be forgotten
(Try harder…)
I could be the one who remembers your name
(Try harder now…)
There could be a heaven
(Try harder…)
But it may be hidden
(Try harder now…)
To those who have broken a heart
In the hope of a path to tomorrow
They have stepped on my toes
And they’ve stolen from those who have borrowed

We can rise
If we stand in light
If we stand in light
But we hide in the shadows
Where we stop and we ponder…

If I could be forgiven
I could be forgotten
I could be the one who remembers your name
There could be a heaven
But it may be hidden
To those who have broken a heart
For the hope of a chance at tomorrow
I could be forgiven
(Try harder…)
But that wouldn’t happen
(Try harder now…)
With those who have broken a heart
In the hope of a path to tomorrow
