Leave A Light On Lyrics

Play "Leave A Light On"
on Amazon Music

The second someone mentioned you were all alone
I could feel the trouble coursing through your veins
Now I know, it's got a hold
Just a phone called left unanswered, had me sparking up
These cigarettes won't stop me wondering where you...

    It could be about someone struggling and turning to drugs. Tom Walker might be saying he is always there for them. Sometimes people really need someone like that to “leave the light on” “to a place where you’ll be safe”
    People with problems often feel like there isn’t anywhere safe to go - they feel like they’re alone.
    I’ve been there once and I think that’s what the songs about

    i think the song is about having a family member or friend who is getting deeper into drug addiction(heroin/crack) and he can see they are struggling with addiction, but he is letting the person know that no matter how bad his addiction is that he is there for him....the song is excellent and helps,

    Tom Walker wrote this when his friend was in a "dark place" referring to a drugged state. His friend was addicted to drugs and he wrote a song about it to tell his friend that he will always be there for him and he will be the light found in the darkness. "I refuse to lose another friend to drugs" only reinforces this idea as Tom Walker is stating that he has previously lost someone to the same thing, drug abuse. "I will leave a light on" is repeated continuously throughout the lyrics to further his need to help if that makes any sense.

    I believe the song is about a friend who is going through something whereas you feel helpless.. but you don’t want to so you make a difference in telling them “you’ll leave a light on” for them. And you are “the house up on the hill, guiding like a lighthouse”

    This song is about trying to find the right road back when you lose your way in life.
