Leave The Light On Lyrics

If I were young again, I’d pay attention - To that
little-known dimension
A taste of endless time
It's just like water – it runs right through our fingers
But the flavor of it lingers - Like a rich, red wine
In those days we were single – we lived them one by one
-
Now we hardly see ‘em – they don’t walk - they run
But I've got plenty left I’ve set my sight on
Don’t wait up - Leave the light on - I’ll be – home -
soon

Short break

I’ve never seen my life in such a hurry - But if I
stop to worry – I get left behind
It’s just a party, but you don’t get invitations – and
there’s just one destination
You better be on time.
For years we rhymed in couplets - And we sang ‘em two by two
Now we hardly rhyme at all – but here’s a few
And if they hurt, there’s bullets left to bite on
Don’t wait up - Leave the light on - I’ll be – home -
soon

Short break

That drummer in my head needs inspiration
There’s a lack of syncopation – and it holds me to a line
It’s just so hard to leave these cages that we think in
By stages we’re just sinkin’ - to a slow decline
For years we lived in waltz time – we danced them
three by three
Now it’s hard to dance, but if you stick with me –
We’ve got what we need to spend the night on -
Don’t wait up - Leave the light on - I’ll be – home -
soon

Break

These races that we’ve run were not for glory - No
moral to this story –
We run for peace of mind.
But the race we’re running now is never-ending – space and time are bending
And there’s no finish line -
I will live to be a hundred - I was born in ’44 - 33 to go, but I ain’t keepin’ score -
I've been left for dead before - but I still fight on –Don’t wait up – Leave the light on
I’ll be home soon

'Cause I been left for dead before - but I still fight on –
Don’t wait up – Leave the light on
I’ll be home soon
