Oh I've been haunted by this old ghost before
I want to hear your voice you know its been so long
Like a dancing wave you balance on the shore
It would feel so good to see your face again

I still sleep with the lights on
I still stay up late alone
I still love another one
I still sleep with the lights on

Oh we both understand we got no way back
Oh our love was strange in a strange land
And we got broken wings we were bound to fall
Until the sun comes up you can hold my hand

I still sleep with the lights on
I still stay up late alone
I still love another one
I still sleep with the lights on

Take it easy and take it slow
Lets just watch the tides they grow
The wind is coming from the side
And we are sleeping in the light
In the light

I feel like waking up in your house some day
Or eating off your hand like a bird astray
But nothings gonna change, well still be the same
We've said what to say, nothings buried nowhere

I still sleep with the lights on
I still stay up late alone
I still love another one
I still sleep with the lights on

I still sleep with the lights on
I still stay up late alone
I still love another one
I still sleep with the lights on

I still sleep with the lights on
I still stay up late alone
I still love another one
I still sleep with the lights on
