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 the 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 pigeon 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?
I don't look for her, I find her in the shadow of my mind
For she's just a girl whose 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
Facing the night without you...
