Lights

lyrics

There were enough bottles to drown a room
There were enough friends to go make war
A couple nasty secrets got spun off the loom
At least we know she ain't a bore

It was the start of a couple months' lessons
Thoughts of fidelity and discretion
One got lost in the lights
The other got lost on an old friend's plight

Doors opened and closed all through the house
They locked people in and brought 'em out
Keeping different parts of the party apart
Well the lights they'll run you down, the lights they'll run you down

Day breaks like it always do
Ca va, par boulevard ou rue
That five-second glance how it turns to hours
No freedom, no flight, I'll just cower

And let it all go on the walking light
And let it all hang on the red light
I stepped off again, no change for today
Just a couple second chances and a couple second days

Doors opened and closed all through the house
They locked people in and brought 'em out
Keeping different parts of the party apart
Well the lights'll run you down, the lights they'll run you down

Doors opened and closed all through the house
They locked people in, brought 'em out
Keeping different parts of the party apart
Well the lights'll run you down, the lights they'll run you down
