When the light fades, when the light's almost gone
they'll be happy, sure of what's coming next
Meanwhile we will lie awake in our beds
too scared to face all the thoughts in our heads
Hold on to what makes sense, don't fear the ghosts
And so foolishly we'll try to beat them anyway
Yeah there is no authority that we won't argue with
We are passionate, we'll shout and we'll cry
And we won't take any grief from some bastard in the sky
Hold on to what makes sense, wrap it up tight
If you'll have me I will be yours till cathedrals fall
or I won't be yours at all
I don't want you to forgive me, I just want your love
I don't want you to redeem me, I just want your love
So don't pretend you're fine, or that you have answers much of the time
Hold on to what makes sense, hold on to me.

"Wintery acoustic songs about love hate, death and other stuff". And swearing. In Scottish.
Not much more anyone could ask for!
Honestly, sometimes life is just miserable, and there has to be a soundtrack for wallowing in that misery. This is it, and in a strangely uplifting way. Wind in the Willows
