Joan Baez - Light A Light Lyrics




I hear your voice in every corridor
I see your face in every picture frame
I feel your eyes in every starry sky
Lover, am I coming home again?

Now am I humble, who once was proud
Now am I silent, who once was loud
Now am I waiting for the sound of your saying
Lover, am I coming home again?

When you're gone the sun don't shine
Light a light, light a light for me
Bring me back home again

And how we loved 'til the years were days
How we laughed all our tears away
And now the time begins to fade
Lover, am I coming home again?

There's a wisdom in the teachings of the old familiar songs
And a sorrow in repeating all the old familiar wrongs
And a lesson to be learned though I've known all day long
Lover, am I coming home again?

Light a light, light a light for me
Light a light, light a light for me
Light a light, light a light for me
Bring me back home again
Bring me back home again

Joan Baez Light A Light Comments
  1. L. Campos

    So beautifull! She is a genius with folk, with
    traditional, protest, ballads, gospell, jazz, love songs , or whatever she
    chooses to sing, to play or to compose. She is simply an uttermost talented
    soul and a great and good heart and intelligence at the service of mankind.
    She´s a precious gift that was given to us. Today, more than ever, we need Love
    On Action which is who Joan is. Gratitude and deep respect forever, Joan Baez.

    Love and Gratitude for a whole life sharing The Light with all of us on earth, with your bright and blessed talent and soul dedicated to Organized Love. God bless you, Joan Baez.
