Leave a Light On - Lyrics

Just like a cigarette tamed by your fingertips
When that cruel whisper spilled from your scarlet lips
So for the last time let me sail upon your ship
For the last time, let us light up

This is goodbye, for the last time
Let's be wild and unashamed
You will always be my dancer
Come and dance inside my flame
Like lovers in the middle of the night
Desperate shuffles as we turn on the lights
Light up, light up, light up
All these faces, different places
We will never ever be the same
I'll keep chasing, always chasing
Just to be beside your flame
Like lovers in the middle of the night
Desperate shuffles as we turn on the light
Light up, light up, light up

I'll be a soundtrack to your ambient dream
If things were different you would be my queen

I will always leave a light on (light on)
I will always leave a light on (light on)

This is goodbye, for the last time
Let's be wild and unashamed
You will always be my dancer
Come and dance inside my flame
Like lovers in the middle of the night
Desperate shuffles as we turn on the lights
Light up, light up, light up
All these faces, different places
We will never ever be the same
I'll keep chasing, always chasing
Just to be beside your flame
Like lovers in the middle of the night
Desperate shuffles as we turn on the light
Light up, light up, light up

This is goodbye
to your sweet flames
LIGHT ON!
This is goodbye
to your sweet flames
LIGHT ON!
THIS (this is goodye)
IS GOODBYE (for the last time)
TO YOUR SWEET FLAME (Desperate shuffles as we turn on the lights)
LIGHT ON!

This is goodbye, for the last time
Let's be wild and unashamed
You will always be my dancer
Come and dance inside my flame
Like lovers in the middle of the night
Desperate shuffles as we turn on the lights
Light up, light up, light up
