Lyrics

Saints in the Light

Written By: Gene Trujillo

Verse: We heard it coming like a bullet train
and it felt like the longest night and day
We saw the levees give way and
we said the city's getting washed away

Chorus: Strength and sadness go hand in hand
like the stars that live with the night
When the rainstorm dies
and the city stops crying
We say hail to the saints in the light

Verse: We watched the blame rain down from left and right
but we've no time to listen to them fight
They think only their opinions matter
none of them are fit to be our master

Chorus: Strength and sadness go hand in hand
like the stars that live with the night
When the rainstorm dies
and the city stops crying
We say hail to the saints in the light

Bridge: Nothing's going to overtake us
Though the storms won't stop coming
Greater is the sum of our strength
rising like the thunderclouds drumming

Verse: So now a hope rides high in the delta sky
A storm of love to save our brother,
sister, son, daughter; father, and mother
If they use our plight as a campaign ad
and make poverty only a game
we'll build bridges made out of hearts
so much higher than any hurricane

Chorus: Strength and sadness go hand in hand
like the stars that live with the night
When the rainstorm dies
and the city stops crying
We say hail to the saints in the light
