She moved so well 'cause she was a dancer,
She went sliding through my questions,
Gliding 'round the answer.


Whatever it was, she knew it was holy,
And each time I tried to hold her
Her smile came sad and slowly.
She said, "No one knows me."


Could you put your light on please, it's kind of dark tonight.
And I feel a little lonely, yes, I need a little light.
Could you put your light on please, let me hear a friendly sound.
I could make it through 'til morning if you could let your light shine down.


She had a dream, I had my typewriter.
While I was hacking out such a heavy world
She was weaving one much lighter.
But I'll never know just how much it cost her,
And as I slept beside her something turned and tossed her.
And it did till I lost her.


Could you put your light on please, it's kind of dark tonight.
And I feel a little lonely, yes, I need a little light.
Could you put your light on please, let me hear a friendly sound.
I could make it through 'til morning if you could let your light shine down.


Bright times were brighter than they'd ever been before, I tell you,
Night times were lighter, But they'll never, never be no more.


Could you put your light on please, it's kind of dark tonight.
And I feel a little lonely, yes, I need a little light.
Could you put your light on please, let me hear a friendly sound.
I could make it through 'til morning if you could let your light shine down.
