Band comments
Nick:
It’s all about the idea of someone returning after a long time away; it’s romantic, but it’s quite dark and mysterious too. You’re carrying a flame for someone, but there’s still an ambivalence.

There was a melancholy to this song from the start, so the lyrics had to reflect that.

Simon:
Again, it’s about imperfection. He’s running from himself. “You breathe the will into the weak ... you ease the lost cause out of me.”

Music videoEdit

The music video was made in Poland by 23 year old Warsaw based art student Paweł Liro, chosen via the Genero TV Contest.

LyricsEdit

So come the evening
I'm out on the dunes
Looking for a token, something to prove
All I remember, is more than a flame
In my fantasy fire

Whatever I've done to receive
Whatever I need to redeem
Whatever you say
Even if I wait a lifetime

CHORUS
I know, I swear
If you leave a light on, if you leave a light on for me
I'll come back
You can leave a light on for me

In comes the morning
I'm stood in my track
Looking at the reasons for me to head back
So unexpected
The kindness you've shown
That I will not forget it

Whatever I've done to receive
Whatever I need to redeem
Whatever you say
Even if I wait a lifetime

CHORUS
I know, I swear
If you leave a light on, if you leave a light on for me
I'll come back
You can leave a light on for me

You breathe the will into the weak
And coax the cage bird to fly free
You ease the lost cause out of me
With your sweet hand to bring me home

I'm not alone

Oh, Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
Oh, Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
Oh, Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
Oh, Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh

CHORUS
I know, I swear
If you leave a light on, if you leave a light on for me
I'll come back
You can leave a light on for me

REPEAT CHORUS
