"Half Light" is a song by the British rock band Athlete from their second album, Tourist. It was released 25 April 2005 as the second single from that album, peaking at #16 in the UK Singles Chart (see 2005 in British music). In March 2006 the song was the title track to an exclusive iTunes EP featuring B-sides and remixes from all of the band's singles for Tourist.

As with the previous single, Wires, the content of the song is autobiographical. The lyrics speak of singer, Joel Pott's, regret at being far away from his family whilst on tour, of how difficult it is to conduct a relationship with them over the telephone and how, when he finally gets to spend some time at home, he will 'make the most of it'.

The song was used for the Sky One ad to commemorate the final episode of Star Trek Enterprise in August 2005.
