lyrics

Lights Come Down

When the lights come down today
On the set and the stage
They sing youth’s eternity
And the hard returning

Like a sunset starving gray
I want your return to me
In the teeth of what will be
To be standing, singing

I can’t wait for the lights come down
Signal me something
I can’t wait the lights come down
Get back to living

As the lights come down today
Walk along the edge of age
On the subject and the scene
How much you still wanted

I can’t wait for the lights come down
Signal me something
I can’t wait the lights come down
Get back to living

Stretch me across the evening
Brace me to go again
Headlights of my stage dreaming
Blinding me again

Let’s go, let’s wake…
