SEARCHLIGHT Ian Roland 15/05/2017
MID 8 INTRO
DON’T KNOW WHERE I LOST IT OR WHERE IT’S GONE
I HAD IT CLOSE BY ME WHEN I LEFT HOME
BUT THAT WAS MANY, MANY, MANY YEARS AGO
AND NOW THE COLD HAS CREPT INTO MY BONES
MY SKIN HAS TURNED ICY, MORTIFIED
EASY TO CATASTROPHISE
COLOURS ARE BLEACHED OUT AND FADED GONE
LEFT SPINNING OUT ON THE EDGE ALL ALONE
OUT ON THE EDGE, LEFT SPINNING…

CHORUS
GOT A SEARCHLIGHT FOR MY SOUL, SEARCHLIGHT FOR MY SOUL
DON’T KNOW WHERE I LOST IT OR WHERE TO GO
(GOT A) SEARCHLIGHT FOR MY SOUL
VERSE 1
WENT TO THE CORNER SHOP AND AFTER A WHILE
FOUND ME A SEARCHLIGHT THAT SHONE FOR A MILE
COST ME QUITE DEARLY, AN ARM AND A LEG
CHANCE TO FIND MY SOUL BEAT REMAINING DEAD

CHORUS
VERSE 2
NEIGHBOUR SAW ME SEARCHING LATE AT NIGHT
SAID WHAT YOU LOOKING FOR? YOU GAVE ME QUITE A FRIGHT
WHEN I COULD GET THE WORDS OUT I WAS LOOKING FOR MY SOUL
SAID THEY’D LOST THEIRS A LONG TIME AGO
CHORUS, INSTRUMENTAL VERSE
MID 8
CHORUS (X2), INSTRUMENTAL VERSE

OUTRO
I MIGHT FIND IT YOU NEVER KNOW
RETRACE MY STEPS NOT THE WAY TO GO
PUT ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER
MY SOUL TO RECOVER, MY SOUL TO RECOVER
