Looking out at the night, the only driver's wheel Curving hips made of snow in the withered fields There's a house up way back where the lamp light glows Left a star out in the cold for the people I'll never know
Who left the light, left the light in the window?
What would I change if the choice were mine? I was doing the best I knew at the time And every door and was opened and door that closed All the things that made me glow, set me off down another road
Out to look for a light, for a light in the window
Now the old has already passed away But the new is too new to be born today So I'm throwing out seeds on the winter snow As the cold wind begins to blow Standing here on a new threshold
I can see a warm dim light in the window And the world is a little storm And the world is a little close And the world is a little light And it's moving very fast
I pass from mystery to mystery, so I won't lie I don't what happens when people die But I hope that I see you walking slow Smiling wide as the sunlight grows Drop my map with a thousand folds In the distance I see a glow
There's a light, there' s a light, there's a light In the window
