LyricsEdit

Franklin:

There's no electricity 

In your touch 

And the darkness 

Is just too much

I need some space 

To light a spark 

Reignite this love 

To shine through the dark 


Rachel:

I'm trying to get through to you 

But you can't see the light 

I tried to keep the candles burning 

To see through the darkness tonight 


Franklin and Rachel:

But you blacked out your feelings 

And all that we've been through 

I'd still walk through pitch blackness 

To make my way to you 

Oh, I'm not giving up 

On this blackout of love 

Even if we never see the light 

I just got to make this right 


Franklin:

They all say that

Should just give up 

But I will not quit

Won't give up on love

'Cause beyond the dark 

Lies a glimmer of light 

Shinging like a beacon

Gleaming so bright


Rachel:

I'm trying to get through to you 

But you can't see the light 

I tried to keep the candles burning 

To see through the darkness tonight 


Rachel and Franklin:

But you blacked out your feelings 

And all that we've been through 

I'd still walk through pitch blackness 

To make my way to you 

Oh, I'm not giving up 

On this blackout of love 

Even if we never see the light 

I just got to make this right 


Franklin:

Oh, why are you so mad at me?

When even in the day, you can't see

I'm not the one who caused this blackout 


Rachel:

And deep inside, you know there's no doubt 

After everything that I gave 

Isn't there something worth it to save? 


Rachel and Franklin:

But you blacked out your feelings 

And all that we've been through 

I'd still walk through pitch blackness 

To make my way to you 

Oh, I'm not giving up 

On this blackout of love 

Even if we never see the light 

I just got to make this right 

Baby, blacked out your feelings 

Oh, all that we've been through 

Yeah, through the pitch blackness 

I find my way to you 

I'm not giving up, giving up 

In this blackout of love 

And if we never see the light 

We had to make this right
