Keith Carradine – The Lights lyrics

Left your home at 23 suitcase full of (gin?)
Thought you had the perfect getaway
Stole yourself across the hills
You stole and stole again
Now the lights don't shine cause you're away

Stuffed that suitcase full with dirty hundred dollar bills
Leaving for another holiday
Found yourself surrounded by the city's finest clowns
Now the the lights don't shine when you're away

Must have been a memory put you back at sea
You were never much for big displays
Well the devil seems to think these complications suit you well
Cause the lights don't shine when you're away
Staring at that picture in your mommas dining room
Taken just before your birthday
She keeps asking if I know when you'll be coming home
Cause the lights don't shine when you're away

Must have been a memory put you back at sea
You were never much for big displays
Pack that suitcase every night if it sets your mind at ease
Cause Running ain't an easy trait

Well the devil seems to think these complications suit you well
Cause the lights don't shine when you're away

Cause the lights don't shine while you're away
