Blue Rodeo – Sad Nights lyrics

I walked you to the corner we stood beside the bus
And the tears rolled down our faces as the driver stared at us
Typical summer that time of year
When you go back to Toronto and I stay here

And the way that you sigh
And Ill miss the way you wake up
And Ill miss the way you turn your head away when you cry
I dont think this time will fly
Here comes the sad nights again
Here comes the sad nights again

Round about midnight when its still too hot to think
Well go back down to the neighborhood and get ourselves a drink

Everyday working not getting far

You know this town aint much for starting up its only made for stars
Later when Im walking
Theres a couple in the doorway and I think I hear them cry
Underneath the starless sky

But they turn their heads when I go by
Theres much hanging in the air and dancing in the streets
Here comes the sad nights again
Here comes the sad nights again
Last days of summer San Gennaro Feast
People line the corners and they stand beside the fires

And Im watching from my window as the sparks go by

Somewhere theres a gunshot
But it happens everyday so theres still laughter in the air

People scatter everywhere
And as I lay down I wish you were here
Here comes the sad nights again
Here comes the sad nights again
