    Lyrics

    I go to sleep
    Before the devil wakes
    And I wake up
    Before the angels take

    All my worldly desires
    All my yardsticks of fear
    Hangin' down, hangin' down

    I go to sleep
    Before the devil wakes
    And I wake up
    Before the angels take

    All my secrets untold, all my motives unclear
    Hangin' down in the fire burnin' them higher
    Won't take them away from here

    And long after we're gone
    The light will stay on
    The light will stay on

    Watched the city, city of crows
    Watched them fly
    Watched 'em all flyin' low

    Out above the flood plain just above the dirt road
    They were hungry as winter, hungry as us
    Not afraid to be flyin', not afraid to be lost

    And long after we're gone
    The light will stay on
    The light will stay on

    And if you bury me add three feet to it
    One for your sorrow, two for your sweat
    Three for the strange things we never forget

    And long after we're gone
    The light will stay on
    The light will stay on

    And long after we're safe
    The lights will not fade
    The lights will not fade
