Holy light visionary sight there's been a
change in plans
Going away no I cannot stay I hope
you'll understand
I won't be home tonight I'll just slip out
of sight
Lay down my visionary eyes dancing on
my cast away dreams
Keep yourself out of sight farewell to the
wishes that died
Look for me in the morning light dancing
on my cast away dreams

Magic one all our dreams are done I
have no faith today
Sun will rise in your newborn eyes just
let me slip away
I won't be home tonight I'll just slip out
of sight
Lay down my visionary eyes dancing on
my cast away dreams
Keep yourself out of sight farewell to the
wishes that died
Look for me in the morning light dancing
on my cast away dreams

It would do no good to drown in the sea
Where no one remembers their name
and nothing but nothing is free

Hearts will break with choices we must
make so sleep and dream of me
I won't be home tonight I'll just slip out
of sight
Lay down my visionary eyes dancing on
my cast away dreams
Keep yourself out of sight farewell to the
wishes that died
Look for me in the morning light dancing
on my cast away dreams
Look for me in the morning light dancing
on my cast away dreams

    General Comment:Another song of his about Stevie. This time he's telling her he's moving on and trying to forget about her (Lindsey's wife finally made him choose between her and Stevie)

    General Comment:Lindsey never gives himself credit as a writer, and yet he is so gifted at writing lyrical double entendre's while infusing emotional content in the musical soundscape. Sadly, there are so few of these writers left in the music biz today. When Lindsey sings "I won't be home tonight" you feel it through the music and the listless quality in his voice that he isn't only referring to not being in his current home but that he is also not the man who was once "at home" to other places and people he once lived in/with. He has grown. It reminds me of this lyric from Half Acre by Hem: "Think of every town you've lived in, every room you lay your head, and what is it that you remember..."

    Lindsey, this song is genius. And I thank you for it. And I also thank you for staying around to write the best songs of your career at a time when your contemporaries are settling into their past nostalgia.
