Lyrics

I left the light on over the porch that it might lead you up to my door.
And as for your suitcase, I made some space. Just in case.

I left the door open. I lifted the latch. I cracked the window. I let out the sash.
And I combed through my hair, and I dressed up in lace. Just in case.

You’ve been gone a long time, and I’ve got a long line of reasons you may not return.
But I’m just guessin that those are lessons that I haven’t learned. I haven’t learned.

I tidied the kitchen and put up the wreath. I took our old record from it’s old sleeve
And I fashioned a flower into a vase. Just in case.

I moved your picture to the front of the shelf. And I perfumed my pillow for you to smell.
I left a little lipstick on my face. Just in case.

You’ve been gone a long time, and I’ve got a long line of reasons you may not return.
But I’m just guessin that those are lessons that I haven’t learned. I haven’t learned.

I left an ember behind the hearth that you’d remember just where you are.
Now I’m rolling over to leave you a place. Just in case. Just in case.
Now I’m rolling over to leave you a place. Just in case. Just in case.
