Never really said too much
Afraid it wouldn't be enough
Just try to keep my spirits up
When there's no point in grieving
Doesn't matter anyway
Words could never make me stay
Words will never take my place
When you know I'm leaving

Try to leave a light on when I'm gone
Something I rely on to get home
One I can feel at night
A naked light, a fire to keep me warm
Try to leave a light on when I'm gone
Even in the daylight, shine on
And when it's late at night you can look inside
You won't feel so alone

You know we've been down that road
What seems a thousand times before
My back to a closing door and my eyes to the seasons
That roll out underneath my heels
And you don't know how bad it feels
To leave the only one that I have ever believed in

Try to leave a light on when I'm gone
Something I rely on to get home
One I can feel at night
A naked light, a fire to keep me warm
Try to leave a light on when I'm gone
Even in the daylight, shine on
And when it's late at night you can look inside
You won't feel so alone

Sometimes it feels like we've run out of luck
When the signal keeps on breaking up
When the wires cross in my brain
You'll start my heart again
When I come along

Try to leave a light on when I'm gone
Something I rely on to get home
One I can feel at night
A naked light, a fire to keep me warm
Try to leave a light on when I'm gone
Even in the daylight, shine on
And when it's late at night you can look inside
You won't feel so alone

    I absolutely love this song. Its about two people who sometimes fight with one another and just get so angry sometimes that they don't want to hear from or see each other ever again. But even though they feel that way, they "leave the light on" when their gone, just in case the other person needs something cuz they realize that they are meant for each other.
    I love david cook!

    I am so glad that david cook won american idol. David artuleta sucks hard, he sounds like he hasen't gone through puberty his voice is so high, though I do like his song Crush, so I sang it for my school talent show! And everybody said that I did rally good and that it sounds like the original wasdone by a girl, because usually if a girl sings a song that a dude sang. Then it sounds really wierd. Same way the other way around. But it dosen't sound wierd like that! Oh and I love this song, my boyfriend is thinking of doing it this year for the talent show, he has a really berautiful voice, very low and soft, yet beautiful and hot! Oh, and david archuleta< he sucks, though david cook.
