After The Lights Go Out
C Bb C Bb
As the sun goes down my silent little room is growing dim
C Bb C Bb
And the man next door is saying what a lousy day it's been
G F C Bb
And the clock on the wall, I'd like to put its ticking to an end
C Bb C
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...
