lyrics

Thinking down Lincoln on a Saturday night
Under the porchlights amber glow
You say I’m always in my head, in the red, half-dead
Just waiting on the rain to come

Oh, but does it matter to you?
Oh, is it supposed to?

Same situations, conversations, revelations
I can see that you are ready to jet
We’ve been leaving in a minute for an hour or two
You know it’s hard work trying to forget

Shine a light, shine a light
Oh wounded night!
All the lost souls wander the streets
Searching for a door with the porchlight on
All looking for a place to sleep

Oh, but does it matter to you?
Oh, is it supposed to?

So tell me…
If we can hear the future coming
But can’t find the words to sing along
I guess we’re all just hanging on

Man, I’m getting older but I still ain’t wise
Gone wrong, but it serves me right
As long as I can dream and I can breathe I’ll still believe
Everything’s gonna be just fine

Shine a light, shine a light
Oh wounded night!
I’m a lost soul wandering the streets
And I’m always in my head, in the red, half-dead
So leave your porchlight on for me

Oh, but does it matter to you?
Oh, is it supposed to?

Oh, it never mattered to you!
Oh, it was supposed to…
