The Walkabouts – The Light Will Stay On

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
