Blue Rodeo - One Light Left In Heaven Lyrics




I pulled myself out of the mess
So everyone could breathe
I took the red-eye home
I was the only one to leave
When looks are daggers
Words are guns
Every hope is gone
The sadness in your eyes
Just lingers on and on

Away
One light left in heaven
Away
High above the clouds
Away
The light goes on forever
I wish we'd stay up here
Never come down

You know I'll wait here for you
I'll wait here for you
No matter where you go
Or what you put me through
And I don't know if you'll come back to me
But baby if you do
I'll be waiting for you

I moved myself around a bit
I thought I'd landed safe
But then I caught a glimpse
Of what was hidden in your face
You looked me in the eye
And told me everything was true
Now we know the distance
Between me and you

Away
One light left in heaven
Away
High above the clouds
Away
The light goes on forever
I wish we'd stay up here
Never come down

You know I'll wait here for you
I'll wait here for you
No matter where you go
Or what you put me through
And I don't know if you'll come back to me
Baby if you do
I'll be waiting for you

Summer makes me restless
And I can't get by alone
I know that's you that's calling
But I don't pick up the phone
The day you started wandering
I guess I lost my faith
I sit here now to wait and see
What's coming in its place

Away
One light left in heaven
Away
High above the clouds
Away
The light goes on forever
I wish we'd stay up here
Never come down

You know I'll wait here for you
I'll wait here for you
No matter where you go
Or what you put me through
And I have walked this floor for hours and hours
Underneath the moon
And I am slowly disappearing here
Just a ghost that's shining through

And I don't know if you'll come back to me
Or if I want you to
I'll be waiting for you
I don't know if you'll come back to me
Or if I want you to
I'll be waiting for you

  13. Julie Morgana

    Pulled myself out of the mess so everyone could breathe.
    Took the red-eye home I was the only one to leave.

    When looks are daggers words are guns. every hope is gone.

    The sadness in your eyes just lingers on and on



    Away one light left in heaven

    Away high above the clouds

    Away the light goes on forever



    I wish we'd stay up here never come down

    You know I wait here for you I wait here for you

    No matter where you go or what you put me through

    I don't know if you'll come back to me but baby if you do

    I'll be waiting for you



    I moved myself around a bit thought I'd landed safe

    Then I caught a glimpse of what was hidden in your face.

    You looked me in the eye and told me everything was true

    Now we know the distance between me and you



    Away one light left in heaven

    Away high above the clouds

    Away the light goes on forever



    Summer makes me restless and I can't get by alone

    I know that's you that's calling but I don't pick up the phone.

    The day you started wandering I guess I lost my faith

    I sit here now to wait and see what's coming in its place



    Away one light left in heaven

    Away high above the clouds

    Away the light goes on forever



    Away one light left in heaven

    Away high above the clouds

    Away the light goes on forever



    I wish we'd stay up here never come down

    You know I wait here for you I wait here for you

    No matter where you go or what you put me through

    And I have walked this floor for hours and hours underneath the moon

    And I am slowly disappearing here just a ghost that's shinin' through

    I don't know if you'll come back to me or if I want you to

    I'll be waiting for you

    I don't know if you'll come back to me or if I want you to

    I'll be waiting for you
