Light On

Never really said too much
Afraid it wouldn’t be enough
Just try to keep my spirits up
When there’s no point in grieving
It doesn’t matter anyway
Words could never make me stay
Words will never take my place
When you know I’m leaving
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Something I’d rely on to get home
One I can feel at night
A naked light
A fire to keep me warm
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Even if the daylight shine on
And when it’s late at night
You can look inside
You won’t feel so alone
You know we’ve been down that road
What seems a thousand times before
My back to a closing door
And my eyes to the seasons
That roll out underneath my heels
And you don’t know how bad it feels
To leave the only one
That I have ever believed in
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Something I’d rely on to get home
One I can feel at night
A naked light
A fire to keep me warm
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Even if the daylight shine on
And when it’s late at night
You can look inside
You won’t feel so alone
Oh yeah
Sometimes it feels like
We’ve run out of luck
When the signal keeps on
Breaking up
When the wires cross in my brain
You’ll start my heart again
When I come along
Yeah
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Something I’d rely on to get home
One I can feel at night
A naked light
A fire to keep me warm
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Even if the daylight’s shining on
And when it’s late at night
You can look inside
You won’t feel so alone
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Even if the daylight’s shining on
And when it’s late at night
You can look inside
You won’t feel so alone
