The light will stay on
(The Walkabouts-1996)

I go to sleep
before the devil wakes
and I wake up
before the angels take
all my secrets untold
all my motives unclear
hangin' down in the fire
burnin' them higher
won't take them away from here

And long after we're gone
the lights will stay on
the lights will stay on

Watched the city city of crows
watched them fly
watched 'em all flyin' low
Out above the flood plain'
just above the dirt road

they were hungry as winter
hungry as us
not afraid to be flyin'
not afraid to be lost

And long after we're gone
the lights will stay on
the lights will stay on

And if you bury me
add three feet to it
one for your sorrow
two for your sweat
three for the strange things
we never forget

And long after we're gone
the lights will stay on
the lights will stay on
And long after we're safe
the lights will not fade
the lights will not fade
