"Sleeping with the Lights On" as written by and Matthew Bronleewe Teitur Lassen....
Oh I've been haunted by this old ghost before
I want to hear your voice you know it's been so long
Well I could dance and wave you balance on the shore
Oh 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

And take it easy and take it slow
Let's just watch the tides they grow
But wind is comin' from the side and
We are sleepin' in the light
In the light

I feel like wakin' up in your house someday
Or eatin' off your hand like a bird astray
But nothin's gonna change we'll still be the same
We said what's to stay nothin's 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

    General CommentI think this song is about still loving your first love with all you've got. Even if you have somebody else and you know you can't have the first love back you still wish for it. It's just so beautiful.

    General CommentWe both understand we got no way back
    Our love was strange in a strange land
    We got broken wings we were bound to fall...
    But nothing’s gonna change, we’ll still be the same
    We’ve said what’s to say, nothing’s buried no where

    it's about the course of love and how some good things that are meant to stay in your past still come back to haunt you. everything about the relationship was accepted, there are no hard feelings, but he still misses it and thinks of it often. a beautiful song.
