Turn Out The Lights Lyrics

Ten long years I’ve lived within this town

Ten years since I put my suitcase down

Ten years since I stopped my endless roaming

And roots began to grow beneath my heels

Now my shadow’s finally come around

It blew in from the northeast on a boiling thundercloud

It took me ten long years to recognize the face that holds me down

And suffocates my body in my darkest hour


Just a baby, and my father knew it well

My Father always taught me that good kids never tell

And no one dared to ask me why I lay awake at night

My arms so still beside me as he turned out the lights

Turn out the lights

I have kept this secret far too long

Buried with my childhood as the years have come and gone

And though I’ve stopped my running now so far away from home

It’s only coming clear to me what I was running from

And I still cannot believe it to this day

For I have kept this secret and denied my youth away

And my family is too frightened now to look into my eyes

There’s a child behind the adult they would surely recognize


They tell you time will wash away the tears

They say time will tied you over ‘til the horror disappears

But time has tricked me deeply and caused me to believe

That out of sight is out of mind

And out of mind is healed

Now I will forgive myself for shame

Forgive myself for being small and helpless in my pain

For forgiveness is the only road to lead the spirit home

And I will be a child forever more

Yes and we will be children forever more
