Lyrics

Jesse, come home, theres a hole in the bed Where we slept, now its growing cold Jesse, your face and the place where we lay By the hearth, all apart, it hangs on my heart And Im leaving the light on the stairs No, Im not scared -- I wait for you Hey Jesse, its lonely, come home

Jesse, the stairs and the halls, recalling Your step, and I remember too All the pictures are shaded and fading in gray And I still set a place at the table at noon And Im leaving the light on the stairs No, Im not scared -- I wait for you Hey Jesse, its lonely, come home Jesse, the spread on the bed, its like When you left, I kept it for you All the blues and the greens have been recently cleaned And are seemingly new -- Hey Jess, me and you Will swallow the light on the stairs Ill fix up my hair, well sleep unaware Hey Jesse, its lonely, come home
