Drifting alone on a wide open sea, letting life pass me by
Avoiding everything I'm afraid to be, but your heart shines a light
Lost in my own misery, till you came and helped me see
That I don't have to be alone
Thank you for giving this lost heart a home

So keep the light on
I'm coming home
Cuz I've been gone for so long

Always lost inside, always looking away
When the best moments in life are ours to take
The tragedy of human life, the darkness that lurks inside
The days that we quit and start to die
This is the time to stand and fight

So keep the light on
I'm coming home
Cuz I've been gone for so long

Keep the light on
Yeah I'm coming home
Cuz I've been gone for so long

So shine on
Shine on
Shine on
Shine on
Shine on

Drifting alone on a wide open sea, letting life pass me by
Avoiding everything I'm afraid to be, but your heart shines a light

So keep the light on
I'm coming home
Cuz I've been gone for so long

Keep the light on
Cuz I'm coming home
Cuz I've been gone for so long

So shine on
Shine on
Shine on
Shine on
Shine on
Shine on
Shine on

    General CommentI know this is probably about finding a woman that you can confide in and makes you a better person.

    But for me, this will always be about finding the local punk rock scene (that I did not know existed for a very long time) and how before that you felt so empty, and you find it. And these people understand you.
