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 grieving

Doesn’t matter anyway
Words can 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
Its something I 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 in the daylight
Shine on
And when its 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

Sometimes it feels
Like we’ve run
Out of luck
When the signal
Keeps on breaking up
When the wires
Cross my brain
You’ll start my heart again
When I come along
