lyrics

Lady, bring your beauty and sit down next to me
Place your hand upon my heart, and know me finally
Falling was your fortune, but now you've come to rest
On the altar of the body, where our union will be blessed

Leave a Light On
For the trickster, for your thief
Leave A Light On
For the beggar, and the king who hides beneath

Lady, move in closer and listen to my song
Hear it beating in your breast to soothe you when I'm gone
The soul that lives between your cells is older than the stones
And in your throat live on these words, carved out of my bones

Leave A Light On
As we rehearse the little death
Leave a Light On
I'll be breathing in your breath

Lady, walk beside me to the final place of dread
The murderer is waiting there to rip my heart to shreds
The time has come to hand to you all that I have to give
So tear your ribs wide open, and find me where I live

Leave a Light On
When the ravens all have flown
Leave A Light On
So I can find my way back home

Leave A Light On
For the angel and the beast
Leave A Light On
Bring your shadows to the feast
