A Light That Never Comes
by Linkin Park



(feat. Steve Aoki)

Nah, you don't know me
Lightning above and a fire below me
You cannot catch me
Cannot hold me
You cannot stop, much less control me
When it rains, it pours
When the floodgates open
Brace your shores
That pressure don't care when it breaks your doors
Say it's all you can take
Better take some more

(Oh)
'Cause I know what it's like to test fate
Had my shoulders pressed with that weight
Stood up strong in spite of that hate

(Oh)
Night gets darkest right before dawn
What don't kill you makes you more strong
And I been waitin' for it so long

The nights go on
Waiting for a light that never comes
I chase the sun
Waiting for a light that never comes
(Oh)
Waiting for a light that never comes

When I was young, they told me, they said
Make your bed, you lie in that bed
A king can only reign 'til, instead
There comes that day it's off with his head

(Oh)
Night gets darkest right before dawn
What don't kill you makes you more strong
You'll have my mercy, then, when you're gone

And I told them
Nah, you don't know me
Lightning above and a fire below me
You cannot catch me
Cannot hold me
You cannot stop, much less control me
When it rains, it pours
When the floodgates open
Brace your shores
That pressure don't care
It breaks your doors
Say it's all you can take
Better take some more
