(live versions on I+e tour) I thought Song For Someone was supposed to be a love song?

I thought SFS was supposed to be about a breakup and an (eventual) makeup? In that context, the live lyric makes sense. There's so many reasons for the relationship to die, but there's also a light (positive) in the relationship, so don't lose sight of that.

I heard it as "Though there are plenty of reasons to doubt, if there is a light, don't let it go out."  He could be changing a bit night to night... I'll have to sample from some of the shows.
