Well you're setting my passions alight
But I'm always intent to do what's right
I try to stand tall, but you've heard "Final Call!"
And your journeys are all fly-by-night.
So I'm keeping an ear out for the door
But I may as well clutch at a straw
The die has been cast but I'm holding steadfast
For a love that will last evermore

And I'll keep a light shining in the window
And I'll keep dreaming of you while I sleep
Meantime I'll keep on searching, trying to find somebody I can keep

Now I'm hoping you don't misconstrue
But I can't bear one more passe-partout
I'll see out my days with someone who stays
And not just be a phase she goes through
So turn around now, I'll help you unpack
But you're fading away down the track
I've tried to foresee through your itiner'y
But there's no guarantee you'll come back

And I'll keep a light shining in the window
And I'll keep dreaming of you while I sleep
Meantime I'll keep on searching, trying to find somebody that I can keep

One loosened grip
One bitten lip
Red eye after waving goodbye
One heartbeat skip

And I'll keep a light shining in the window
And I'll keep dreaming of you while I sleep
Meantime I'll keep on searching, trying to find somebody I can keep
And I'll keep letting go of all the memories
And I'll keep wishing talk was not so cheap
Meantime I'll keep on searching, trying to find somebody I can keep.
