I seen myself with a dirty face,
I leave the light on,
I leave that light on
I cut my luck with a dirty ace
I went from zero to minus ten
I drank your wine then
I stole your man
I leave the light on,
I leave that light on.

Daddy ain't that bad he just plays rough
I leave the light on, I leave that light on
I ain't that scarred when I'm covered up
Little girl hiding underneath the bed
Must be something I said
Was it something I did
I leave the light on, better leave the light on.

I wanna love
I wanna live
I never did
I don't know much about it
17 and I'm all messed up inside

I leave the light on,
I cut myself just to feel alive
I leave that light on
From myself, from myself and everyone
I leave the light on,
21 on the run,on the run,on the run,
Better leave the light on.

Cause I wanna love
And I wanna live
I don't know what to do, can the damage be undone
I don't know much about it
I swore to God that I'd never be what I've become
And I never did,

Lucky stars and fairy tales
I'm gonna bathe myself in a wishin' well
Pretty scars from cigarettes
I...never will forget, I...never will forget

I'm still afraid to be alone
Wish that moon would follow me home
I leave that light on
I leave the light on,
I ain't that bad I'm just messed up
I ain't that sad but I'm sad enough

Cause I wanna love
I don't know much about it
And I wanna live
And I never did,
I swore to God that I'd never be what I've become
I don't know what to do, can the damage be undone

Na na na na na na na na...
I leave that light, I leave that light, I leave that light on

God bless the child with the dirty face, who cuts her luck with a dirty ace
I leave that light onShe leaves the light on,
