David Cook – “Light On” Lyrics

Never really said too much
Afraid it wouldn’t be enough
Just try to keep my spirits up
When there’s no point in grieving
Doesn’t matter anyway
Words could never make me stay
Words will never take my place
When you know I’m leaving

Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Something I rely on to get home
One I can feel at night
A naked light, a fire to keep me warm
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Even in the daylight, shine on
And when it’s late at night you can look inside
You won’t feel so alone

You know we’ve been down that road
What seems a thousand times before
My back to a closing door and my eyes to the seasons
That roll out underneath my heels
And you don’t know how bad it feels
To leave the only one that I have ever believed in


Sometimes it feels like we’ve run out of luck
When the signal keeps on breaking up
When the wires cross in my brain
You’ll start my heart again
When I come along

Fantastic song, it’s already stuck in my head.

This guy is obviously gay, right?

I LOVE him, and I love this song…anxious for his album to be released. The Idols always change thier look, it pissed me off. He needs to get rid of that eye liner, and get more the rocker look going. He looks silly here.

I really like this song!

i love the song, it’s a good first single and the haters can step off. if you don’t like it, that’s fine but don’t rain on our parade!!! we’re stoked for new DC music – it’s awesome =)

Doesn’t look like him. We will see if the public makes him the next big thing.

I thought the song was not good. He looks foolish with that eyeliner also.

I like his new song…but ugh.,…what a horrid picture.

Who thought that was a good idea.


not digging the picture…which is shocking because I usually love every picture captured of mr. cook here.

as for the song- not gonna lie, i didn’t love it on first listen. its taken me a few go-throughs to warm up to it. someone else mentioned that they don’t really hear David in it… it’s him singing obviously, but there’s that special quality about some of his pre-Idol songs that really helped listeners connect with him. despite that little hiccup, i think the song has immense selling power and should be pretty popular on the radio circuit.

the bridge is gorgeous, as well as that little acoustic bit he gets to do as well. that took me by happy surprise.

so good job david. if your album is anywhere near as good as this first song, you’re gonna have a ton of happy fans.

He looks like a Drag King in that picture…

Is he still dating Kim Caldwell?

YAY i’m so glad he won! I love him…but not THAT picture haha
totally representing KC!….love it :D
