Light on

Song Author Chris Cornell Lyrics by: Rob Cavallo Performer: David Cook Submitted by: juliusgrettir
[Am]    
[Am]Never really said too much
[C]Afraid it wouldn’t be enough
[G]Just try to keep my spirits up
When there’s no [F]point in grie[E]ving

[Am]Doesn’t matter anyway
[C]Words could never make me stay
[G]Words will never take my place
When you kn[F]ow I’m leav[E]ing  

Try to leave a light[F] on when I’m gone [C]    
Something I rely[G] on to get home [Dm]    
One I can feel[F] at night
A [C]naked light, a fire [Am]to keep me warm [G]    
Try to leave a lig[F]ht on when I’m gone [C]    
Even in the day[G]light, shine on [Dm]    
And when it’s [F]late at night you can look insi[C]de  
[G]You won’t feel so alo[E7]ne   

[Am]You know we’ve been down that road
[C]What seems a thousand times before
[G]My back to a closing door
and my eyes to [F]the seasons [E]    
[Am]That roll out underneath my heels
[C]And you don’t know how bad it feels
[G]To leave the only one that I have ever [F]believed in [E]    

Try to leave a light[F] on when I’m gone [C]    
Something I rely[G] on to get home [Dm]    
One I can feel[F] at night
A [C]naked light, a fire [Am]to keep me warm [G]    
Try to leave a lig[F]ht on when I’m gone [C]    
Even in the day[G]light, shine on [Dm]    
And when it’s [F]late at night you can look insi[C]de  
[G]You won’t feel so alo[E7]ne   

[Am]    [C]    [G]    [Dm]    
[D]Sometimes it feels like we’ve run out [G]of luck
[B]When the sig[A]nal keeps on breaking up [Em]    
[C]When the wires cross in my brain
[G]You’ll start my heart again
[A]When I come along

Try to leave a lig[F]ht on when I’m gone [C]    
Even in the day[G]light, shine on [Dm]    
And when it’s [F]late at night you can look insi[C]de  
[G]You won’t feel so alo[E7]ne   


Never really said too much
Afraid it wouldn’t be enough
Just try to keep my spirits up
When there’s no point in grieving

Doesn’t matter anyway
Words could never make me stay
Words will never take my place
When you know I’m leaving

Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Something I rely on to get home
One I can feel at night
A naked light, a fire to keep me warm
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Even in the daylight, shine on
And when it’s late at night you can look inside
You won’t feel so alone

You know we’ve been down that road
What seems a thousand times before
My back to a closing door
and my eyes to the seasons
That roll out underneath my heels
And you don’t know how bad it feels
To leave the only one that I have ever believed in

Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Something I rely on to get home
One I can feel at night
A naked light, a fire to keep me warm
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Even in the daylight, shine on
And when it’s late at night you can look inside
You won’t feel so alone


Sometimes it feels like we’ve run out of luck
When the signal keeps on breaking up
When the wires cross in my brain
You’ll start my heart again
When I come along

Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Even in the daylight, shine on
And when it’s late at night you can look inside
You won’t feel so alone
