Janis Ian – Party Lights lyrics

Party lights
Is there anybody here tonight?
Doesn't anybody have a light?
Party lights
Champagne and caviar
Cocaine and Shalimar
Don't push too far
Your party lights
People tell me that
I'm fading fast
But I can't last
The whole night through
Everybody now
It's closing time
I can't find my way to you
Don't lose your head
Remember all those things
Your mama said
But every vampire here appears well-fed
You look half-dead
They like you, kid
Party games
Somebody pinned a needle in me
And I went insane
Walking on the edge of the line
In the driving rain
I felt no pain
It's a hell of a game
People tell me
There's an end to this
But one last kiss
Turns into two
Everybody can't leave now
I don't know how
To make it through
Heady wine
Moving too slow for me
Can't keep time
Watching the silent movie
For a sign
In my prime
Heady wine
You move too slow
I'm drowning- don't let go
I'm drowning- can't say no
Keep it low
Hell of a show
People tell me that
I'm fading fast
But I can't last
The whole night trough
Everybody now
It's closing time
I can't find
My way to you
