After The Lights Go Out

The Walker Brothers – After The Lights Go Out

As the sun goes down
My silent little room is growing dim
And the man next door
Is saying what a lousy day it’s been
And the clock on th wall
I’d like to put its ticking to an end
In the room below
The girl is crying for her guy again

After the lights go out
What will I do?
After the lights go out
Facing the night without you

There’s a pidgeon that’s
Been sittin’ on my window-sill all day
I guess he’s lonely too
I wonder if his love has flown away
When I get upon my feet
I need a cup of coffee anyway
Someone called for you
But I hung up the ‘phone – what could I say?

After the lights go out
What will I do?
After the lights go out
Facing the night without you

I don’t look for her
I find her in the shadow of my mind
For she’s just a girl
Who’s memory will be wiped away with time
Any second now
The lamp down the street will show its light
And I just can’t seem
To tear away her kisses from the night

After the lights go out
What will I do?
After the lights go out
Facing the night without you

Facing the night without you
Facing the night without you
Facing the night without you
Facing the night without you…

About AvatarNemo

V: Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valourous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition! The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V.
