Didn't really notice
That the sun was goin' down
All that's left are the streetlights
Of this lazy desert town

Didn't really notice
That I'm all alone again
'Cause that's the way
That it's always been

If it weren't for streetlights
There would be no light at all
Casting a shadow on my wall
My lonely wall

Watching the tail lights
From the corner of my eye
The moon and the stars must have picked
Another part of the sky

Didn't really notice
That I haven't got a friend

'Cause that's the way
That it's always been

If it weren't for the streetlights
There would be no light at all
Casting a shadow on my wall
My lonely wall

The stars of a city
Glowing ten miles away
I don't know why that makes it seem
So much farther away

Don't really care
That I'm all alone again
'Cause that's the way
That it's always been

If it weren't for the streetlights
There would be no light at all
Casting a shadow on my wall
My four lonely walls
