Song Lyric Sunday: Lights – ‘I Saw The Light’

“There was not another soul in sight
Only you, only you”

This week’s theme for Helen’s ‘Song Lyric Sunday’ is Lights. That gave me a little pause for thought, but I soon remembered this little beauty from 1972 (a great year for little beauties, by the way). Todd Rundgren goes pop – and none the worse for that.

It was late last night
I was feeling something wasn’t right
There was not another soul in sight
Only you, only you

So we walked along
Though I knew that there was something wrong
And a feeling hit me, oh so strong
About you

Then you gazed up at me
And the answer was plain to see
‘Cause I saw the light
In your eyes, in your eyes

Though we had our fling
I just never would suspect a thing
Till that little bell began to ring
In my head, in my head

But I tried to run
Though I knew it wouldn’t help me none
‘Cause I couldn’t ever love no one
Or so I said

‘Cause my feelings for you
Were just something I never knew
Till I saw the light
In your eyes, in your eyes

But I love you best
It’s not something that I say in jest
‘Cause you’re different, girl, from all the rest
In my eyes

And I ran out before
But I won’t do it anymore
Can’t you see the light in my eyes
In my eyes

Written by Todd Rundgren.

  1. Todd Rundgren! My parents played the radio every morning and his music always reminds me of waking up and getting ready for junior high! Geeze, I miss the 70s! LOL! Great choice! 💯
