Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Leave a message at the tone
I'm unavaliable today
I've made a grave mistake in following my will
I'm standing on a stepping stone
All I see is water in my way
This fear's enough to keep me still

[Chorus]
But I'll leave a light on for you
Oh, I'll leave a light on for you

[Verse 2]
I've been in my cocoon for too long
Have I ever known how to fly?
And all around me, faces smilling, for no one
Your simple questions paralyze
Eyes waiting for their chance to cry
So I shut you out, I swear I'm not ungrateful
Just undone

[Chorus]
But I'll leave a light on for you
Oh, I'll leave a light on for you

[Outro]
Come find me (Come find me)
I'll find me
Come find me (Come find me)
I'll find me
Come find me (Come find me)
I'll find me
Come find me (Come find me)
I'll find me
Come find me (Come find me)
I'll find me
I'll leave a light on for you
Oh, I'll leave a light on for you
