Can you stay up for the weekend?
And blame god for looking too old
Can you find all that you stand for?
Has been replaced with mountains of gold

You can untrain yourself to notice
To feel pain and swallow fear
But can you stay up for the weekend 'til next year

God I can't do this anymore
Oh I'll be laid down on the floor
As many feet walk through the door
I'm not alone


If I see a light flashin'
Could this mean that I'm comin' home?
If I see a man waving
Does this mean that I'm not alone?


If I see a light flashin
Could this mean that I'm comin home?
If I see a man waving
Does this mean that I'm not alone?

    The book of matthew (in the bible) makes a refence as lighting that comes from the east and is visible in the west so will the coming of jesus be. If i see a light flashing could this mean i'm coming home?.. And the song makes mention of god so it fits. Also he song says
    god i can't do this anymore oh i'll be laid down on the floor as many feet walk through the door i'm not alone. So he is alone in this room and many walking right outside of it.. But yet he says he is not alone because he acknowledges god's presence being with him.

    well what he is saying is he needs a little help and he is realizing himself and he knows he has a friend with him or someone by his side and that means he is not alone, this person is dear to him because they are liek a mountain of gold
