Got to pick it up again
What I’m feelin just ain’t right
No, what I feel isn’t right
Why ‘you make me so uptight?
Won’t you just turn on a light 💡

Saw you floating up the stairs…
At the edges of my sight…
And, the bristling of my hairs…
Think I’ll just turn on the light 💡

Heard you whispering my name
Your secrets stretch these sinews tight
My muscles taught, my racing brain
Can’t keep quiet overnight ✨

Saw you run across the floor
Sad eyes awfully full of fright
Before you close the closet door
Won’t you just let in some light
