about

This is a love song about loss, hope, and memory.

lyrics

"Leave A Light On"

Lying awake
Again, for god's sake
Counting the tiles on the ceiling until my eyes ache

You're gone
But you're still around
Holding on tight to your memory is what I am

Tied up in knots
Of things best forgotten
Feels like my mind's in the clouds as I
Suffer at street-level

But I can't let go
Of the cross I bear
Though it hurts me so
Knowing you're not there
There's a fire in my heart
And a stone in my soul
But I leave a light on

Sandpaper smile
Wearing me thin
Blurring the lines where you ended and where I begin

Denied
And not satisfied
Seemed like the world hung upon everything you were hung-up on

But I can't let go
Of the cross I bear
Though it hurts me so
Knowing you're not there
There's a fire in my heart
And a stone in my soul
But I leave a light on

We could fly, you and I
Turn our backs against the world in our pride
You always swore to tell the truth, or
What the truth appeared to you, until you died
Until you died

And I'm trying to let go
Though it hurts me so
Quench the fire in my heart
Break the stone in my soul
I'd still leave a light on
