The Gray Havens – Pale Moonlight Lyrics

In the pale moonlight
In the dark, in the dead of night
Secondhand from the star it shines
The fire’s on
Cold touch of an ancient rhyme
There’s a God that I left behind
Secondhand everywhere I find
The fire’s gone

They told me, “Keep to your course in chasin’ after desire”
I’m not finding a source like some [?] fire

But maybe I am [?]
I-I can’t find a light
Tell me how many go down and never return
To the sunlit lands

Had a dream where I went to find
Far away, over seas and time
The lost shores of a distant island
For so long
Woke up to the pale moonlight
Cold touch of an ancient rhyme
Secondhand everywhere I find
The first one

They told me, “Keep to your course in chasin’ after desire”
I’m not finding a source like some [?] fire

But maybe I am [?]
I-I can’t find a light
Tell me how many go down and never return
To the sunlit lands
[Heaven please?]
But maybe I am [?]
I-I can’t find a light
Tell me how many go down and never return
To the sunlit lands
