about

"Darkness Can't Survive In The Presence Of Light" is the first original holiday song from Lara Hope & The Ark-Tones. This seasonal swinger is here to remind us that although the winter may be cold and dark, the lights of the season can help to get us through the tough times. This is a song of hope, gratitude, and optimism. We hope it brings joy.

lyrics

I shiver when the cold winds blow, I snuggle when the lights are low
I bundle when I go outside, in the snow on a sleigh ride
The days are short, the nights are long , So I’m gonna sing this song
About the season, the reason, we should smile , Even though it may be dark for a while

The lights on the trees warms my heart
Flicker of candles cuts through the dark
The glow of the season shortens the night
Cause darkness can’t survive in the presence of light

Darkness can’t survive in the presence of light
Oh darkness can’t survive, can’t survive it, no
darkness can’t survive in the presence of light
No, darkness can’t survive, it can’t survive

A shadow falls from dusk til dawn
Covers the land with it’s sleepy song
When nightfall comes, we illuminate
It’s a holiday, let’s celebrate

We light one candle for each day
String up the lights like it was broadway
It may be cold, but it will be alright
Cause darkness can’t survive in the presence of light

Darkness can’t survive in the presence of light
Oh darkness can’t survive, can’t survive it, no
darkness can’t survive in the presence of light
No, darkness can’t survive, it can’t survive


D-A-R-K-N-E-S-S turns to L-I-G-H-T
D-A-R-K-N-E-S-S I think you will agree
That the more we smile, the more we share
The more we try, the more we care
The more we give, the less we take
The more we love, the less we break
So end the night, let’s find your light again

Darkness can’t survive in the presence of light
Oh darkness can’t survive, can’t survive it, no no no no
darkness can’t survive in the presence of light
No, darkness can’t survive, it can’t survive
Darkness can’t survive, it can’t survive
