Walkabouts

Walkabouts - The Light Will Stay On

rate me

I go to sleep, before

the devil wakes

and I wake up, before

the angels take

all my worldly desires

all my yardsticks of fear

all my secrets untold

all my motives unclear

hangin' down in the fire

burnin' them higher

won't take them away from here

and long after we're gone

the light will stay on X2

watched the city ... city of crows

watched them fly, watched

'em all flyin' low

out above the flood plain

just above the dirt road

they were hungry as winter,

hungry as us

not afraid to be flyin', not

afraid to be lost

and long after we're gone

the light will stay on X2

and if you bury me, add

three feet to it

one for your sorrow, two

for your sweat

three for the strange

things we never forget

and long after we're gone

the light will stay on X2

and long after we're safe

the lights will not fade X2
