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

well I hope a little light is still shining in your eyes
when you think of me, when you think of me
if you still do

chorus:

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
I did a lot of filling in
I 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

chorus

well I did a lot of wandering
I did a lot of filing in
I did a lot of questioning why and where I should go
as soon as I have got the strength
I’m heading for an open space
heading for a better place where you might find me

chorus

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

I hope a little light is still shining in your eyes
when you think of me, when you think of me
if you still do

chorus

I might be home
I might be home
