Keep Your Light Burning


Make hay while the sun shines 
And reach for the moon
Savor the moment
For it will fade and soon
Clouded days 
Will come your ways
So keep your light burning
Forever
Keep your light burning
Forever

What's lying in wait
Like a thief in the night?
Beware don't give in!
Don't surrender without fight
And lay to grave
What can't be saved
But keep your light burning
Forever
Keep your light burning
Forever

Where true glory lies
For a soldier at war
Is in hope to remember
What he is fighting for
Stay the course
Hold the line
And keep your light burning 
Forever
Keep your light burning
Forever
