Lincoln tried to address, to address
Lincoln tried to address Gettysburg that day.
He was put to the test, make sense of this mess
Just like you and me.

When the light turns on us
Bright from darkness
Eyes need to adjust.

He took the stage and did his best
His words were clear and focused.
On this they all agreed
Some were moved, some not impressed
Was it too much to digest, too simple to see?

When the light turns on us…

Some times they weigh more than the rest
You need to see the forest, when all you see are trees
You trust that beating in your chest
Don’t look back, don’t second guess
Don’t go blowing with the breeze.
