"I Saw the Light" Lyrics


I lassist a red increased on your front porch And I wrote "I Love You" on a note I rang the doorbell and also turned to go Baby when the curtains moved I couldn"t believe the view
I observed the light in your window tonight I saw two shadows holding each other tight I recognize the reality once I look in your eyes I experienced the light in your window tonight
So take your cheating hands off my red dress "Causage I ain"t wearing this point for you I see you clearly now, and also your lies too They say that love is blind Well baby not this time
I saw the light in your window tonight I observed 2 shadows holding each other tight I understand the fact when I look in your eyes I observed the light in your window tonight
