The man that Trace Adkins was portraying would wait for his lover to come back and he will do so by leaving all the lights on. It may not be environment-friendly, but you must admit that it is a very romantic gesture.

Lyrics Breakdown

I told you I’d leave a light on
In case you ever wanted to come back home
You smiled and said you appreciate the gesture
I took your every word to heart
‘Cause I can’t stand us being apart
And just to show how much I really miss ya

This is a hopeful song of a man who tries his best to stay positive. He is trying to keep the love he has for his woman to stay afloat in the midst of crisis. He is very desperate that he will leave all the lights on to symbolize the bright love that he still has for her. I really don’t know if he is to be admired or to be pitied. What do you think?
