about

This is the first of three singles produced by Corrado Rustici. He and I worked together on Elisa Toffoli's "Pipes & Flowers" and I'm happy we got to work together on these. He is Globally about as amazing as they come in terms of talent, ability and a spiritual sense of hearing what the song desires. Originally this song was written for my mother, about my straddling two worlds in my nightly travels, hoping for light to find my way back. Starting with just my acoustic guitar & me, as usual. It is awesome to see where an artist like Corrado can take just that much. thank you. Love and Gratitude. -BDF

lyrics

I might be back this evening, or tumble in with the dawn
I know the face you’ll wear when I come in
I’m the source of such a fury, your hatred’s hard to bear
for tonight could we forget where I have been, when I come home

weary from wondering, awake by the thundering in my heart
oh, mama, leave a light on for me
please don’t send me away
I pray for a bright and a brand new day
oh, mama, leave a light on for me

I know that I’ll be wretched, I know the way I’ll look
I’ll smell like the devil, so foolishly lost
praying that you still love me, though I’ll be at my worst
for tonight could we forget the emotional cost, when I come home

buzzing and bleeding, my conscience receding to its grave
oh, mama, leave a light on for me
please don’t send me away
I pray for a bright and a brand new day
oh, mama, leave a light on for me

someday I’ll do better, I won’t make you cry
I’ll inspire you to endless laughing joy
so please don’t deny me your shining moon-full breath
for tonight don’t forget I’m your only baby boy, when I come home

loving the lightning, your world is brightening my blue soul
oh, mama, leave a light on for me
please don’t send me away
I pray for a bright and a brand new day
oh, mama, leave a light on for me

well I'm wishing and wanting, your world is haunting my sad heart
oh, mama, leave a light on for me
please don’t send me away
I pray for a bright and a brand new day
oh, mama, leave a light on for me
