"leave the light on" as written by and Lester A/kilcher Mendez....
You started over yesterday
In dirty rain the sky was so grey
You listen to the engine sing
And you forget about everything

Let the sun shine
Like it's never shined
Across a blue sky
And watch the time fly

Free all the lonely boys who love no one
And dream on through the years and leave the light on

You never felt a night so cold
Your angry eyes were tightly shut closed
You fell out of love with rock and roll
You shot a hole in your radio

Let the sun shine
Like it's never shined
Across a blue sky
And watch the time fly

Free all the lonely boys who love no one
And dream on through the years and leave the light on

Don't you dream on

    General CommentLeaving a light on has always been a sign of waiting for someone to show up at your house, which is why we light candles at christmas and put them in the windows, we're waiting for the christ child. In this song he's basically addressing himself and the "lonely boys" like him who struggle through life and survive by the hope in their dreams of a better life. He's telling himself to make the music for them b/c it frees them from the bleakness of their lives...IMHO
