Mike Heron - Trim Up Your Love Light lyrics

Edinburgh on Sunday night, very little happening,
Nowhere to go
I looked up from my drink in the Drummon bar
I saw it was her and my heart was beating so
Just meeting that girl again did it,
Made me see what I’d closed off
I had forgotten what she meant to me
And how she’d stood by me when things were rough

She said «Oh baby never sell yourself short
For me you got it, I got faith in you
Only way you could lose it you know
Is if you close off the love that’s in you.»

Trim up your love light, love mine,
Trim up your love light, love mine,
Trim it up, trim it up, trim it up
Trim it up, trim it up, trim it up
Trim up your love light, love mine
Let it shine, shine, shine.

At night I would sing in the Crown bar
It brought me down, it was emptier day by day
That darling girl she’d come up behind me
She’d whisper «I love you, send your blues away».

She’d say «Oh baby never sell yourself short
For me you got it, I got faith in you
Only way you could lose it you know
Is if you close off the love that’s in you
Don’t close it off, don’t close it off.»

Come ten o’clock we moved out to the street
We looked in each other’s eyes
We had this special song we used to sing
Just to keep from crying - it went like this:

Trim up your love light, love mine,
Trim up your love light, love mine,
Trim it up, trim it up, trim it up
Trim it up, trim it up, trim it up
Trim up your love light, love mine
Let it shine, shine, shine.
