Lyrics:We're All Light

by XTC

Album version:

   And I won't take from you

   Don't you know,
   'bout a zillion years ago
   Some star sneezed
   Now their paging you in reception
   Don't you know,
   Jack and Jillion years ago
   Some dinosaur dropped the pail
   When it saw our reflection
   Don't you know we're all light?
   Yeah I read that someplace
   Don't you know we're all light?
   Yeah I read that someplace

   So you won't mind if I kiss you now
   Before indecision can bite
   Don't you know, in this new Dark Age
   We're all light

   Don't you know,
   'bout your finger tips away
   Is a universe of atoms
   That thinks you're real something
   Don't you know,
   Just a couple of lips away
   Is an evolutionary Bean Feast
   who's insides are jumping
   Don't you know we're all light?
   Yeah I read that someplace
   Don't you know we're all light?
   Yeah it's a bumper sticker someplace

   So you won't mind if I kiss you now
   We may hear the angels recite
   Don't you know in this new Dark Age
   We're all light 
   
   And I won't take from you
   What you can't take from me
   And I'll leave nothing here
   That you can't use upon your trip
   I won't take from you
   What you can't take from me
   And I'll leave nothing here
   But love and milk a plenty
   For your tea

   Don't you know, 'pon the pillion of times bike
   We roar on to the stage
   And too soon we're dead centre
   Don't you know, Buffalo Billion's raised his sight
   He's picking off the whole herd
   As soon as we enter

   So you won't mind if I kiss you now
   And maybe come on in for the night
   Don't you know in this new Dark Age
   We're all light
   We're all light
       (And I won't take from you
        What you can't take from me)

   You know where you itch
   Is a little tiny switch
   And if you let me in
   I can show you just the pin
   That you put in the slot
   When the element gets hot
   And the stuff just pours out
   Oh we're light
   Kiss me now
   Just kiss me now


Demo version:

   And I won't take from you

   Don't you know
   'bout a zillion years ago
   Some star sneezed, now they're paging you in reception
   Don't you know
   Jack and Jill-ion years ago
   Some dinosaur dropped the pail when it saw our reflection

   Don't you know
   We're all light
   Yeah, I read that someplace
   Don't you know
   We're all light
   Yeah, I read that someplace
   So you won't mind if I kiss you now
   Before indecision can bite
   Don't you know in this new Dark Age
   We're all light

   Don't you know
   At your fingertips arrayed
   there's a universe of atoms that thinks you're real something
   Don't you know
   Just a couple of lips away
   There's an revolutionary bean-feast whose insides are jumpin

   Don't you know
   We're all light
   Yeah, I read that someplace
   Don't you know
   We're all light
   Yeah, it's a bumper sticker someplace
   So you won't mind if I kiss you now
   We may hear the angels recite
   Don't you know in this new Dark Age
   We're all light

   And I won't take from you what you can't take from me
   And I'll leave nothing here that you can't use upon your trip
   And I won't take from you what you can't take from me
   And I'll leave nothing here but love and milk a' plenty for your tea

   Don't you know
   Upon the pillion of time's bike
   We roar onto the stage and too soon we're dead center
   Don't you know
   Buffalo Bill-ions raised his sight
   He's picking up the whole herd as soon as we enter
   So you won't mind if I kiss you now
   And maybe come on in for the night
   Don't you know in this new Dark Age
   We're all light
   We're all light

   And I won't take from you
   what you can't take from me
   And I won't take from you
   (you know where you itch, is a little tiny switch, and if you let
   me in, I can show you just the pin, that you put in the slot and the
   element gets hot, and the stuff just pours out)
   And I won't take from you
   what you can't take from me
   (all we're light)
   (kiss me now, kiss me now)

   And I won't take from you
   what you can't take from me
   And I won't take from you
   what you can't take from me
