Carrie Newcomer – A Light In The Window Lyrics

Looking out at the night beyond the driver’s wheel
Curving hips made of snow in the winter fields
There’s a house set way back where the lamp light glows
Like a star out in the cold
Filled with people I’ll never know

Who left a light, left a 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 that was opened and door that closed
All the things that made me grow
Sent me off down another road

Off 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 light, there’s a light in the window

And the world is made of stone
And the world is made of glass
And the world is made of light
And it’s moving very fast


I pass from mystery to mystery, so I won’t lie
I don’t know what happens when people die
But I hope that I see you walking slow
Smiling wide as the sunrise 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
