Counting Crows – Leave A Light On (Live) lyrics

I woke up wednesday morning
Sometime wednesday evening
Just looking for a piece of something
Easy to believe

When you live out on the border
Of everything and nothing
There's nothing but waking
And then dreaming

Barely out of tuesday
No one to receive me
And nothing is changin

Maybe you could leave a light on
Maybe you could leave a light on
Maybe you could leave a light on..
For me
Can you see her
Waiting there,
Down by the sea?

See look, I know theres a light on
Theres no one there for me
Oh if you see me you see me coming home
Just turn me away

Cause everybody tries to go back somewhere some day
So just leave a light on
Everybody tires to go back somewhere some day

Just leave a light on
For me
So that I can see
Just leave a light for me
So that
So that
Maybe I can see

Cause there's a girl in a car out in the parking lot
And she says man, c'mon,
Just take a shot

She says
Can't you see me?
Can't you see me?
Can't you see my walls come tumbling down?
Said can't you see them crumbling down on me?
Can't you see?
Can you see?
