T. burke - Leave the light on

The Autumn moon hangs for you
Forever brilliant in my mind
A distant train, the smell of rain
All the words I could never find
But I can't recognize your smile
No I can't remember your face
There's a lost and found in my head, in my head
I pick through souvenirs for promises that you never kept
Leave the light on when you go
The Jersey sun like a loaded gun
Trailed me like a private eye
The plans we made, the debts I paid
Reduced to rumors and alibis
But I can't recognize your smile
No I can't remember your face
There's a lost and found in my head, in my head
I pick through souvenirs for promises that you never kept
Leave the light on when you go
You're the leaves in the drainpipe I can't quite reach
The waves in the harbor that don't find the beach
A siren that's whistling from five miles away
The smell of the asphalt in a late summer rain
Once in awhile you sneak to my bed
To remind me of memories I thought I had shed
How painfully strange to know someone at all
Til one day you wake up with nobody to call
Leave the light on when you go
Leave the light on when you go
Leave the light on when you go
Leave the light on when you go
