Patti Scialfa — Charm Light lyrics

Written by: Patti Scialfa

You know I got a string of kisses
Tattooed down my arm
From the love of lonely men
That always came to harm
Tattooed down my arm
To my fingertips
You ain't the only lonely
Man that I've ever kissed
But when the night is sinking low
Hold me baby oh and don't let go
'Cause when you turn that charm light on me
Yeah you turn all the wrong in my world right
When you turn that charm light on me
Make it so pretty make it all seem right

You know I saw those fallen crosses
Those broken stones of faith
Knew I could name the sorrow
That haunts the side of your face
Yeah I could name the sorrow
And somehow set you free
I knew you'd be the one
Who'd do the same for me
So when the night is sinking low
Come on baby oh here we go
'Cause when you turn that charm light on me
Yeah you turn all the wrong in my world right
When you turn that charm light on me
Make it so pretty make it all seem right

Now I know love ain't no fairy tale
Ain't so pretty or so pure
There's a train of unforgiveness
For things that came before
But I know who I am
And I wash myself clean
Of all that muddy water
And all those railroad dreams
So when the night is sinking low
Come on baby oh here we go
'Cause when you turn that charm light on me
Yeah you turn all the wrong in my world right
When you turn that charm light on me
Make it so pretty make it all seem right
Turn the light on me
Turn the light on me now
Turn the light on me
Turn the light on me now
Turn the light on me
Turn the light on me now
Turn the light on me
