Chasing The Light Lyrics

Every bridge that you keep on burning
Every leaf that you keep on turning
Every road that you find uncertain
Pray for you now, baby, that you'll figure it out
As you keep chasing the light

Remember back when you slept on my floor
Blow up mattress down by the door
10 pounds heaver from wasted time
We didn't know we were way out of line

From the moment that you popped out on the scene
Hard to know what you got or your meant to be
Everything that you know goes flying
From Johnny O's coach to a gypsy bus island

Holding hands with people in life
Till they walk away saying no good byes
And you keep saying that you're running down a dream
But she don't know where it leads
As you keep chasing the light

Every bridge that you keep on burning
Every leaf that you keep on turning
Every road that you find uncertain
Pray for you now, baby, that you'll figure it out

Every hope and dream that's dying
Every time that I see you crying
Every step that you keep on climbing
Pray for you now, baby, that you figure it out
As you keep chasing the light

Got the call that you sent out yesterday
40 lines and a fallout holiday
On my knees with the weight that was mine
Think about you when I'm driving at night

Familiar sounds and it takes me right back there
Bridge street and the beat in the summer air
Was it easier to wash your feet
And never deal with the hell that a young boy sees

Where liquor runs thicker than blood
On your own when push came to shove
Before we had these mouths to feed with innocent dreams
While you keep chasing the light

Every bridge that you keep on burning
Every leaf that you keep on turning
Every road that you find uncertain
Pray for you now, baby, that you'll figure it out

Every hope and dream that's dying
Every time that I see you crying
Every step that you keep on climbing
Pray for you now, baby, that you figure it out
As you keep chasing the light

Remember hearing Dylan's first songs first
Remember writing down a train wreck verse
We were running down Franklin high school lights
Burning alive in a Chevrolet night

Remember driving out to Salton sea
Dreaming bout all we thought we'd be
One way tickets into southern lights
Slammed the door and said goodbye, goodbye

Every bridge that you keep on burning
Every leaf that you keep on turning
Every road that you find uncertain
Pray for you now, baby, that you'll figure it out

Every hope and dream that's dying
Every time that I see you crying
Every step that you keep on climbing
Pray for you now, baby, that you figure it out
As you keep chasing the light
