{sunday sounds} Lost in the Light | Bahamas

Even though Afie Jurvanen’s stage name is Bahama,

his mesmerizing, melancholy track, “Lost in the Light” is more

 stark winterscape at Long Island Sound than palm trees and sunshine.

I’ve been lost in his hypnotic lyrics all afternoon. . .

“So if someone can see me now, let them see you.”

lost in the light

I’m lost in the light
I pray for the night
To take me, to take me too

After so many words
Still nothing’s heard
Don’t know what we should do

So if someone can see me now, let them see you

It was my greatest thrill
But we just stood still
You let me hold your hand ’til I had my fill

Even countin’ sheep
Don’t help me sleep
I just toss and turn right there beside you

So if someone could help me now, they’d help you too.

They’d help you to
See you through
All the hard things we’ve all gotta do
Cause this life is long
And so you wouldn’t be wrong

Bein’ free you and me on my own

And I held my own
Still I rattled your bones
I said some awful things and I take them back

If we would try again
Just remember when
Before we were lovers, I swear we were friends

So if someone could see me now let them see you

Let them see you
See you through
All the hard things we’ve all gotta do
Cause this life is long
So you wouldn’t be wrong
Bein’ free here with me on my own

Bahamas
