Juliana Hatfield – The Lights lyrics

I follow the path of a falling star
It takes me closer to where you are, are
What can I do, I try to be with you
But I can only go so far

You're light years ahead of me
So bright that I can't help but see
And you, I know how good it could be

I try to look outside myself
I try to find some outside help
I'll try to sleep 'till you come up tonight

And I'll lie down right under the lights
For a little while I can feel all right
A better life is in plain sight
I'll be fine until the time comes to put out all of the lights

Half a moon is moon enough
To get me all the way across the bay
A roman candle shoots off from the beach
And lightning strikes a place way out of my reach

I'd say I have the perfect view
If only it was always true
But in dark is it most of the time

When I get right down in front of the lights
Sometimes I really start to feel all right
A better life is in plain sight
I'll be fine until the sun comes up and dims the light of the night

Come up right down next to me
I don't have to say anything
It's better than any made up fantasy

Looking out and looking up
I can see with my eyes shut
This might just be the best time of my life

And when I get right down in front of the lights
Sometimes I really start to feel all right
A better life is in plain sight
I'll be fine until the time comes to put out all of the lights
