The Lights Are On but No One Is Home​

The lights are on, but no one's home,

these glimmered eyes, lamps left on long ago,

dimmed to dreams of a new life to come.

The lights are on but no one's home.

Damn these thoughts in their deafening sum!

This wringing is all I know.

The lights are on but no one's home,

these glimmered eyes, lamps left on long ago.
