Music Monday

Music Monday: Leave A Light On (Talk Away The Dark) by Papa Roach

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. Bjørn and I will pick a song alternatively on each Monday and share our thoughts about them. Timy’s pick this week is Leave A Light On (Talk Away The Dark) by Papa Roach.

Thoughts and Ramblings

I keep having a pattern with Papa Roach where I love one of their albums, then the next makes me meh, then I love it again, and so on. Ego Trip is their latest, and it seemed to be the exception as I wasn’t into the previous one, and at first, I wasn’t into this one either. Then recently I kept seeing them talking about Leave A Light On (Talk Away The Dark) on their social media a lot, and it was an instant hit with me. So I went and relistened the album, and I admit it grew on me, so thankfully we are on the right path after all.

Papa Roach tends to have songs with heavy lyrics, and while this one doesn’t seem like that at first, it has a lot of deeper meaning. It’s about being there for those who are going through dark times, about love, kindness, and caring. To be the light for someone else. The little things always go a long way, so make sure you check up on your friends every once in a while.

Song Lyrics

Dry bones rattle in a lonely soul
Slipped and fell into a deep black hole
I can tell you’re lost, I’m here for you
Wild fires burning you down to stone
Blind eyes, turning from a world so cold
A million miles apart, within my reach

It’s not like me, to worry
But when I see you fading in the dark
I’ll leave a light on for you
Through the long nights, I will be right
There for you if you drift too far
I’ll leave a light on for you
You
You

The rain comes following an endless drought
To wash away the remnants of all your doubts
I hope that you see me looking out

It’s not like me, to worry
But when I see you fading in the dark
I’ll leave a light on for you
Through the long nights, I will be right
There for you if you drift too far
I’ll leave a light on for you

Through the long nights, I will be right
There for you if you drift too far
I’ll leave a light on for you
You
You
