lyrics

I’m on a cardboard boat
And the water is high
When you’re on your own
Feels like there’s nowhere to hide
I’m on a cardboard boat
Tonight

Been looking back again
feels like I’ve lost everything
I know I’m older now
Feels like the tide’s rushing in
Been looking back again tonight
So Please leave the light on
So I can find my way back to you
Leave the light on, for me.

It’s like a carnival
after the weather has changed
Even the carousel
Don’t want to turn in this rain
I’m at a carnival Tonight

So please leave the light on
So I can find my way back to you
Leave the light on, for me.
Or let a ladder down
So I can climb my way back to you
Let a ladder down For me.
Are you still listening?
Cause I’m still talking to you
Cause when the curtains drawn
Tell me what else should I do?
I’m on a cardboard boat tonight
