"Turn Out the Light" as written by and Adam/jordan Nutter....
I know that it burns like poison in the pill
You sing in your sleep, it echoes in the hills
You can't hear a word
You can't hear my broken will

The world through a windshield
Is callous and cheap
I toss and I turn I can't get to sleep
Counting the hours
The days that turn into weeks

I've been wrong, but it's alright
They've been long and lonely nights
I was lost till I found you
I'm turnin' out the light
I'll stay if you want me to

Somehow my time got outta my hands
I just wanna stop, master commands
Telling the truth won't be this way again
A long ways away, but you're never alone
I look at the sky, over our home
I'll be around; a few more miles to go

I've been wrong, but it's alright
They've been long and lonely nights
I was lost till I found you
I'm turnin' out the light
I'll stay if you want me to

You don't have to say it
You don't have to speak
I've been away, worried and weak
Don't say a word

I've been wrong, but it's alright
They've been long and lonely nights
I was lost till I found you
I'm turnin' out the light
I'll stay if you want me to

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song.

    I think it's a song about loving someone while on the road, and having to reassure the other person that everythin will be alright, despite being apart for so long.

    I think Matt wrote this one for his wife. =)
