from Chris Cunningham live on "11th & Grant" (2018) by Chris Cunningham

Making good time, keeping it straight between the lines
not so many more miles to go
Your day dreamin’ days are over, feeling good and in control
you can sleep through Sunday when you get home

Leave the light on, I can’t wait
I’ll be resting in your arms, by the breaking of day

You know our old friend Tom sold off all of his guitars
Felt defeated by the distances and waking up in the car
Still he says he’s still writing and there’s a new song on the way
But the benefits of showing up in the same place everyday

Leave the light on I’ll be home soon
You’re my candle in the window, and my window to the truth

I’ve seen my share of scenery
From the switchbacks of the mountains
Through desert to the shining sea

And I can safely say
This old engine’s still in tune
It’s never run better beneath the midnight

Leave the light on when you turn in
Bedtime stories for the kids and kiss them on the head
Making good time
Making good time
Making good time
Making good time


from Chris Cunningham live on "11th & Grant" (2018), released October 3, 2018
