Leave a Little Light

When we’re homesick it’s not for places
So much as the faces of the people that we know
And the road that we take is built on a landscape
Of each of our loving souls

So when we lose a star dies, the earth cries
At darker skies, our world is changed
And the road that we take is built on a landscape
Of all that’s re-arranged

Leave a little light in the window, I might be home
Leave a little light by the back door, too
Leave a little light in the stairway up to your room

Hope a little light is still shining in your eyes
When you think of me, when you think of me
If you still do

Leave a little light in the window
Leave a little light in the window
Leave a little light in the window, I might be home

Well, I did a lot of wandering, Did a lot of filling in
Did a lot of questioning why and where I should go
Soon as I have got the strength, I’m
Heading for an open space
Heading for a better place where I might find me

Hope a little light is still shining in your eyes
When you think of me, when you think of me
If you still do
