Lyrics

Living in a dream
That I can't wake from
And day to day
The nights all seem the same

Running from a thought
I can't escape from
A memory catches up with me
And I don't have the strength to fight it

And when I sleep
I am hunted
By my darkest fears
In the cleverest disguises

No one will ever know
The shadowed, stormy,
Spiral of my mind
The crushing weight
Of the twisted spectres
Brings me down, down

And at the bottom
Is a hollow lightless prison
With a broken carousel of nightmares
Where I am sentenced
To the reassembly of the fragments
That go around and around

And in the funhouse mirror
Of my introspection
I see a woman
Whose forgotten how to pray

And my brain and my body
Just had a heart to heart
And they don't reckon
I can go on long this way

Lucy, leave the light on
I can't see
I'm trying to find my way
But I don't know where I'm supposed to be
And if the light within you
Can find the light still left in me
I can finally let go

Living in a world
That doesn't understand your beautiful soul
You can't take it with you when you go, no
And you're not afraid of losing

Keeping a promise, knowing
No one else will ever hold you
Oh your love is a mystery
Your devotion's your undoing

There's a man at the door
Says he wants your heart
But you know he just wants own you
Daddy's all gone, and Mama won't listen
And the governor's on his side

You can live and die
By a rich man's lie
Or be damned for your decision

They couldn't move you
Though they tried
They couldn't burn you
With their fire
Took your body
Took your eyes
But not your vision

Lucy, leave the light on
I can't see
I'm trying to find my way
But I don't know where I'm supposed to be
And if the light within you
Can find the light still left in me
I won't be so alone

I'm flying along
At the edge of the world
And there isn't a cloud in the sky

But the water is where
The earth should be
And it's rushing down over the side

And the closer I get
The surer I am
That there's no turning back
This is it
It's the end
And then it

Shifts

Something deep inside me
Brings me back to life
The darkness fills with light
And I begin again

I'm finding my way
At the top of the world
And the path isn't easy to see

But if I just keep it up
It can't get me down
And if I just keep moving
I might get free

If I just have faith
If I just hang on
If I follow my heart
I can't go wrong
And then it

Breaks

And I wonder
Was any of it real

Lucy, leave the light on
I can't see
I'm trying to find my way
But I don't know where I'm supposed to be
And if the light within you
Can find the light still left in me
Then I will know
