Light On

Album: Heard It In A Past Life (2018)
  • Would you believe me now
    If I told you I got caught up in a wave?
    Almost gave it away
    Would you hear me out
    If I told you I was terrified for days?
    Thought I was gonna break

    Oh, I couldn't stop it
    Tried to slow it all down
    Crying in the bathroom
    Had to figure it out
    With everyone around me saying
    "You must be so happy now"

    Oh, if you keep reaching out
    Then I'll keep coming back
    And if you're gone for good
    Then I'm okay with that
    If you leave the light on
    Then I'll leave the light on
    And I am finding out
    There's just no other way
    That I'm still dancing at the end of the day
    If you leave the light on
    Then I'll leave the light on

    And do you believe me now
    That I always had the best intentions, babe?
    Always wanted to stay
    Can you feel me now
    That I'm vulnerable in oh-so many ways?
    Oh, and I'll never change

    Oh, I couldn't stop it
    Tried to figure it out
    But everything kept moving
    And the noise got too loud
    With everyone around me saying
    "You should be so happy now"

    Oh, if you keep reaching out
    Then I'll keep coming back
    And if you're gone for good
    Then I'm okay with that
    And if you leave the light on
    Then I'll leave the light on
    And I am finding out
    There's just no other way
    That I'm still dancing at the end of the day
    And if you leave the light on
    Then I'll leave the light on

    Oh, leave the light on
    Oh, would you leave the light on?

    If you keep reaching out
    Then I'll keep coming back
    But if you're gone for good
    Then I'm okay with that
    If you leave the light on
    Then I'll leave the light on
    And I am finding out
    There's just no other way
    That I'm still dancing at the end of the day
    If you leave the light on
    Then I'll leave the light on

    Oh, if you leave the light on
    Then I'll leave the light on
    Oh, if you leave the light on
