I seen myself with a dirty face
I cut my luck with a dirty ace
I leave the light on
I leave the light on

I went from zero to minus ten
I drank your wine then I stole your man
I leave the light on
I leave that light on

Daddy ain't that bad he just plays rough
I ain't that scarred when I'm covered up
I leave the light on
I leave the light on

Little girl hiding underneath the bed
Was it something I did
Must be something I said
I leave the light on, I better leave the light on

'Cause I wanna love
And I wanna live
I don't know much about it
And I never did

17 and I'm all messed up inside
I cut myself just to feel alive
I leave the light on
I leave the light on

21 on the run, on the run, on the run
From myself, from myself and everyone
I leave the light on, I leave the light on
Better leave the light on

'Cause I wanna love
And I wanna live
I don't know much about it
And I never did

I don't know what to do
Can the damage be undone
I swore to God that I'd never be
What I've become

Lucky stars and fairy tales
I'm gonna bathe myself in a wishin' well
Pretty scars from cigarettes
I never will forget, I never will forget

I'm still afraid to be alone
Wish that moon would follow me home
I leave the light on
I leave that light on

I ain't that bad
I'm just messed up
I ain't that sad
But I'm sad enough

'Cause I wanna love
And I wanna live
I don't know much about it
And I never did

I don't know what to do
Can the damage be undone
I swore to God that I'd never be
What I've become
I leave the light, I leave the light
I leave the light on

God bless the child with the dirty face
Who cuts her luck with a dirty ace
She leaves the light on
I leave that light on
