Between The Lines

Light A Light

Janis Ian

I hear your voice in every corridor
See your face in every picture frame
I feel your eyes in every starry sky
Lover, am I coming home again

Now am I humble, who once was proud
Now am I silent, who once was loud
Now am I waiting for the sound of your saying --
Lover, am I coming home again

When you're gone, the sun don't shine
Light a light, light a light for me
Bring me back home again

And how we loved, 'til the years were days
How we laughed all our tears away
and now the time begins to fade
Lover, am i coming home again

There's a wisdom in the teachings
of the old familiar songs,
and a sorrow in repeating
all the old familiar wrongs,
and a lesson to be learned,
though I've known all along
Lover, am I coming home again

Light a light, light a light for me
Light a light, light a light for me
Light a light, light a light for me
Bring me back home again
Bring me back home again
