Craig Cardiff – Porchlight lyrics

One month down; two more months in
I can’t wait to see you again
I’m going to hold you so tight
Until your heart’s unbroken

Some of us got lost; some got found
Mortgaged, car’d, kids, on the edge of town
Tell me what happened to the fireworks and
Promises spoken?

All my friends are someplace else
I’m out here by myself
Leave the porchlight on and
Your heart wide open

I went for a walk where I grew up slow
Hoping to see a face I’d know
I walked for hours
And didn’t meet a soul

I’m tired of other people’s bathrooms
And other people’s beds
Some of us stayed; most of us fled
From this life
It can leave you a little bent and broken

I threw myself out into the world
And the world she received me
And landed me safe in
Safe into the nest of you

All my friends are someplace else
I’m out here by myself
Leave the porchlight on and your heart wide open
