about

And Tears Fell was always willing to experiment and rerecord earlier material, and this track is a prime example. More upbeat and less atmospheric than the original version, which appeared on the first album, Sidhe, in 1989.

lyrics

Chamber of Light
(Downing/Downing)

Knocking down the old ideas
Try to find what’s right
I could say, “I’m fine, how are you?”
But that would be a lie

Having it all, wanting nothing
What a way to go…
Wanting it all, having nothing
I only want to go home

Feelings in the chamber of light
All I know is shadows
I can’t tell the day from night
Oh no, not from here

Bringing back my fantasies
Could it be right?
I only wanted solace from you
Could you hold me tight?

Seeing it all, hearing nothing
What a way to go…
Hearing it all, seeing nothing
I only want to go home

Feelings in the chamber of light
All I know is shadows
I can’t tell the day from night
Oh no, not from here
