lyrics

YOU DREW ME ONCE WITH SCRIBBLES IN MY BRAIN
WHEN I WAS NOTHING BUT A FACELESS STICK MAN TRYING TO PASS FOR SANE
HIDING IN DOORWAYS LIKE A CAT CAUGHT IN THE RAIN

SO I SING OH-OH

IT'S A LONG WALK BACK FROM THE PRECIPICE
LOOKING ANYWHERE BUT DOWN YOU'D BE SURPRISED THE THINGS YOU MISS
WHO'D EVER THOUGHT IT WOULD COME TO THIS

SO I SING OH-OH

STILL I KNOW YOU WILL LEAVE YOUR PORCH LIGHT ON
WHEN I'M WANDERING, AND I'M ALWAYS WANDERING
WHEREVER I GO I'LL NEVER BE GONE
'CAUSE I KNOW YOU WILL LEAVE YOUR PORCH LIGHT ON

YOU AND I ARE PERCHED ON A NARROW WIRE
OUR FINGERS VIBRATE WITH VOCATION AND OUR WARDROBES ARE ON FIRE
AND I DON'T KNOW IF WE'RE EVER GONNA TIRE

STILL I KNOW YOU WILL LEAVE YOUR PORCH LIGHT ON
WHEN I'M WANDERING, AND I'M ALWAYS WANDERING
WHEREVER I GO I'LL NEVER BE GONE
'CAUSE I KNOW YOU WILL LEAVE YOUR PORCH LIGHT ON
I KNOW YOU WILL LEAVE YOUR PORCH LIGHT
OH-OH
