When the lights go down Lyrics

When the lights go down by Edie Brickell & New Bohemians  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


When the lights go down Benny lost faith in a gambling spree.
Had to leave this place -- get away from me.
We'll meet again.
Maybe introduced as friends.
He'll come around in awhile,
but it's so hard to see when the lights go down.
And it's hard to believe when the lights go down.
And you shake in your shoes sitting next to the blues.
'Cause you don't want to lose what you've found.
Then he wants to run but he stands his ground.
Sick of those big boys pushing him around.
Here comes a crowd.
They don't care what it's about.
Somebody's son's going down.
And it's so hard to see when the lights go down.
And it's hard to believe when the lights go down.
All the animals know when the fire is low.
'Cause the wind starts to blow on the ground.
Went away on Sunday.
Had a glass of wine on Monday.
All by yourself in your room.
And it's hard to believe when the lights go down.
And it's so hard to see when the lights go down.
And you shake in your shoes sitting next to the blues.
'Cause you don't want to lose what you've found.
