“For twenty years, I was completely blind to all of my fears. I’ve had a weight tearing it down with all of these years. I’m left with very few to care about except the ones I hold dear. And there ain’t nothing you can say to me to make the truth be more clear.” – lyrics
‘Light Shine In’ tells an interesting tale of a guy who sometimes wishes he was lost.
Apparently, he believes there’s nothing worse than being found, or knowing what you might find behind the dark corners that you walk around.
Even though things seem uncertain at times, he’s still optimistic about what the future holds.
‘Light Shines In’ contains a moving storyline, stirring soul vocals, and spirited chorus. Also, the likable tune contains lush instrumentation flavored with contemporary soul, neo-gospel, and alternative-pop elements.
Wilder Woods – “Light Shine In” single
“‘Light Shine In’ is the first song on this record. And it acts as a sort of manifesto for what ‘Wilder Woods’ is all about. Recording the track was easily the most spontaneous experience I’ve ever had in the studio. It’s in your face, which was important to convey in the video. And will likely be the first song in the ‘Wilder Woods’ live set this fall as well.” – Wilder Woods
