When I was young, I was frightened by shadow monsters on my wall
And I was convinced, they would get me in the dark, if I slept at all
I knew she was there in her bedroom, so I'd tiptoe down the hall
Lay my head on the floor and try to see under her door

I was looking for the light
When it was on, I knew everything was all right
Before I could knock, she'd open the door
And I'd look up and seen that smile
She always knew, when I was looking for the light

At 19, I had all the answers, thought I could make it on my own
As we were packing she said, "Don't ever forget, this is always your home"
Soon I found a one room apartment has monsters of it's own
So sometimes, I'd go out and drive by that old house

And I was looking for the light
When it was on, I knew everything was all right
Before I could knock, she'd open the door
And I'd look up and seen that smile
She always knew, when I was looking for the light

I stood there filled with fear, as she was passing away
They said, "She can't hear you now, all we can do is pray"
As I squeezed her hand, she opened her eyes
And smiled for me one last time
She always knew, when I was looking for the light
