Leave a Light on For Me
I can see no one’s home, from the street outside.
You’ve been gone now for three days…there’s no end in sight.
My hope is like a candle, burning with a glow.
I keep it safe inside me. I never let it go.
I’m asking for forgiveness—I’ve said all I can say.
We’ve been together so long, don’t let it slip away.
Leave a Light on for Me. Leave a light on for me.
Ocean of blue in your eyes dear, for a thousand miles.
You keep in mind the blessings, you keep in mind the trials.
Your face is in a picture, hanging on my wall.
I’m sending out this prayer to you—I hope you hear my call.
I’m looking out our window-the moon is hanging low.
The future is just a mystery that we don’t have to know.
It’s time to go to sleep now but somewhere in the night,
the candle we lit together must be shining bright.
