Lyrics:

Verse I:
I've been pushing it down, holding face
Only showing you the mask that hides this
Animal in her cage

Verse II:
I'll only let you see me, standing strong
Even when I've got it all so wrong
My fears are swallowing me whole

So what if I told you my knees were buckling...?

Chorus:
I know our love can be much brighter
Right now we're barely hanging on
I'm so sorry, It's my turn, I'm burning low
Can you leave your light on for me?

Verse III:
Wanted to be the one to ignite
Light a fire in you
I wish I hadn't played with those matches again

If i'd only told you sooner my body'd be more than just this ashe and bone...

Chorus:
I know our love can be much brighter
Right now we're barely hanging on
I'm so sorry, It's my turn, I'm burning low
Can you leave your light on for me?

Bridge:
Can you be stronger for the both of us, just for now?
I promise I'll remember when my time comes around to
Leave my light on for you

Chorus:
I know our love can be much brighter
Right now we're barely hanging on
I'm so sorry, It's my turn, I'm burning low
Can you leave your light on for me?
