Leave a Light on

lyrics

Leave a light on for me when you close the door
There seems to be nothing left for me, nothing anymore
I tried and it’s true to keep loving you
But all the feelings sag
You know it and we blocked it out
And all the fruit went bad
That’s when it seemed like things weren’t going right where it’s going there is no light
And then the summer turned to night and there’s no light
There’s just flight. And the summer sighed. And you won’t try…
There was a time when we were loving glowing love
We stopped in our tracks and we blurred all the facts, It all fit like a glove
Even the people then they filled the air with light
And life was not the thing it is now.
There was no stress or strife.
