"Al Genina (Leave The Light On)" as written by Michael Maida, Jeremy Taggart, Duncan Coutts, Steve Mazur and Bob Rock....
Fell asleep today
North Ontario
Woke up far away
A place I didn't know

A woman smiled at me
She said, "welcome to my home"
Life is different here she said it's not
Camouflage with gold

And hey, leave the light on for me
And hey, leave the light on for me

Might not make it home
Can't leave here tonight
Not afraid to live
Not afraid to die

And hey, leave a light on for me
And hey, leave a light on for me.

    General CommentThe lyrics aren't entirely correct. Below is the correction, just regarding 3 lines (lines 7-9 of shelmerdinefan72's post). And don't flood up the lyrics section by reposting these under a new song title. If you wanna have them alter what was posted fine else don't make a mess like tons of idiots do. thx and enjoy the corrections.

    Fell asleep today

    Woke up far away
    A place I didn’t know
    A woman smiled at me
    She said, "welcome to my home"
    Life is different here she said it's not
    Camouflage with gold
    And hey, leave a light on for me
    Hey, leave a light on for me
    Might not make it home
    Can we fear tonight
    Not afraid to live
    Not afraid to die
    And hey, leave a light on for me
    And hey, leave a light on for me

    General CommentOn the DualDisk of the new album and there's a feature called "Making of the Album" or something,ike that. On it, Raine said this song was about (and I'm typing this through what I remember he said, so it may not be entierly correct) his trip(s) overseas. He was just sleeping, and when he woke up at the end of the plane ride, everything was different than from home. "leave a light on for me" means that he may return there one day to help the people there again, because he felt like he was abandoning them. he had to leave because he and Chantal had a son.

    General CommentFrom ourladypeace.com come the correct lyrics:

    I fell asleep today, in North Ontario
    Woke up far away, In a place I didn’t know
    A woman smiled at me, She said welcome to my home
    Life is different here she said, it’s not camouflaged with gold

    Hey, leave the light on for me
    Hey, leave the light on for me

    Might not make it home, can’t leave here tonight
    Not afraid to live, not afraid to die

    Hey, leave the light on for me
    Hey, leave the light on for me
