Please, leave your light on for me
Let it shine off through the night
I know by now you?re not expecting me
I?ve been so long out of sight

I?m coming through the darkest hour now, mama
Don?t give up on me, just yet
I got no excuses for ya
But I sure got some regrets, I sure got some regrets

I went out from the halls of grace
My soul turned into stone
Please, leave your light on for me
I?ve been taking the long way home

Please, go easy when you see me, mama
I just might fall apart
I know, I?ve tried your patience
I know, I?ve stretched your heart

The sky fell down hard upon me
I've been crawling in the dirt
Nobody?s fault but mine for sure
And not just me who?s hurt, not just me who?s hurt

I went out from the halls of grace
Turned my back on my own
Please, leave your light on for me
'Cos I?ve been taking the long way home
