Leave a light on    (video)

 

            Dm

1. The second someone mentioned you were all alone

                Bb

    I could feel the trouble coursing through your veins,

                  F                    C

    now I know, it's got a hold.

                  Dm

    Just a phone call left unanswered had me sparking up,

              Bb

    these cigarettes won't stop me wondering where you are,

                   F                 C

    don't let go, keep a hold !

 

              Dm

    If you look into the distance, there's a house upon the hill,

      Bb

    guiding like a lighthouse to a place where you'll be safe

                      F

    to feel at grace 'cause we've all made mistakes.

                                   C

    If you've lost your way...

 

                                Dm - Bb                                  F   - C

I will leave the light on,           I will leave the light on.

                               Dm - Bb                                  F    - C

I will leave the light on,         I will leave the light on.

 

    Dm

2. Tell me what's been happening, what's been on your mind,

     Bb

    lately you've been searching for a darker place

          F                 C

    to hide, that's alright.

                     Dm

    But if you carry on abusing, you'll be robbed from us,

   Bb

    I refuse to lose another friend to drugs,

                       F                     C

    just come home, don't let go.

 

              Dm

    If you look into the distance, there's a house upon the hill,

      Bb

    guiding like a lighthouse to a place where you'll be safe

                      F

    to feel at grace, 'cause we've all made mistakes.

                                   C

    If you've lost your way...

 

                                Dm - Bb                                  F   - C

I will leave the light on,           I will leave the light on.

                               Dm - Bb                                  F    - C

I will leave the light on,         I will leave the light on.

 

 

+  I will leave the light on.

              Dm

    If you look into the distance, there's a house upon the hill,

      Bb

    guiding like a lighthouse to a place where you'll be safe

                      F

    to feel at grace, and if you’ve lost your way,

                                   C

    if you've lost your way, I will leave the light on.

 

                Dm

+  And I know you don't know, oh, but I need you to be brave,

     Bb

    hiding from the truth ain't gonna make this all okay.

                         F

    I'll see your pain if you don't feel our grace

                                        C

    and you've lost your way…

 

                                   Dm - Bb                                  F     - C

+  I will leave the light on,          I will leave the light on !

      - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -  Dm

    'Cause I will leave the light on.
