"Every Light In The House" as written by and Kent M. Robbins....
I told you I'd leave a light on
In case you ever wanted to come back home
You smiled and said you appreciate the gesture
I took your every word to heart
'Cause I can't stand us being apart
And just to show how much I really miss ya

Every light in the house is on
The backyard's bright as the crack of dawn
The front walk looks like runway lights
It's kinda like noon in the dead of night
Every light in the house is on
Just in case you ever do get tired of being gone
Every light in the house is on

If I should ever start forgetting
I'll turn the lights off one by one
So you can see that I agree it's over
But until then I want you to know
If you look south, you'll see a glow
That's me waiting at home each night to hold ya

Every light in the house is on
The backyard's bright as the crack of dawn
The front walk looks like runway lights
It's kinda like noon in the dead of night
Every light in the house is on
Just in case you ever do get tired of being gone
Oh every light in the house is on
The backyard's bright as the crack of dawn
The front walk looks like runway lights
It's kinda like noon in the dead of night
Every light in the house is on
Just in case you ever do get tired of being gone
Every light in the house is on

    General Commentkind of obviously about a guy who is still waiting for the girl he loves, but she's moved on.

    General CommentReminds me of perhaps a married couple. She is considering divorce, and has decided to do seperation for a while. He is hoping she will choose to stay, and keeps the lights on for her to return.

    General Commentthe narrator was recently split from his wife. He literally turns every single light on in the house and keeps them on for her in case she wants to return to his side. He insists on leaving the lights on, paying no regard to the electrical hazard this may cause or the financial burden that will ensue.
