Light on the road
Lyrics and Music: JBJ
Finished February 2009
Hey, is this candle for me? It burns for I indeed.
It’s just a lantern that’s left on the sidewalk.
An old mason jar in the cup of my hands.
How its shine grows, this lamp sheds a soft coloured glow.
For you’ll help me find my way home, and be my light on the road.
You were a fortunate sign, weren’t you a pleasant surprise.
A guide you are there like a lighthouse, the brightest of beacons in my darkest hour.
I’ll grab a hold with knuckles so white they grow cold
For you’ll help me find my way home,
And be my light on the road.
Though my hair soon will turn gray, though I am old and I walk with a cane, don’t you know this warmth I will hold.
Be my light on the road.
Someday soon I will find, that you have been here all the time.
Don’t you know you’ll always be here, and be my light on the road.
