JESSE (Janis Ian) Roberta Flack - 1973 Janis Ian - 1974 Joan Baez - 1975 Shirley Bassey - 1975 Karrin Allyson - 1992 Jesse, come home, there's a hole in the bed Where we slept, now it's growing cold Jesse, your face and the place where we lay By the hearth, all apart, it hangs on my heart And I'm leaving the light on the stairs No, I'm not scared -- I wait for you Hey Jesse, it's lonely, come home Jesse, the stairs and the hall, recalling Your step, and I remember too All the pictures are shaded and fading in gray And I still set a place at the table at noon And I'm leaving the light on the stairs No, I'm not scared -- I wait for you Hey Jesse, it's lonely, come home Jesse, the spread on the bed, it's like When you left, I kept it for you All the blues and the greens have been recently cleaned And are seemingly new -- Hey Jess, me and you Will swallow the light on the stairs I'll fix up my hair, we'll sleep unaware Hey Jesse, it's lonely, come home
