Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes – Light Don't Shine lyrics

(S. Van Zandt)

The streets are dark tonight
The city is quiet now
It's good to be away
Those people they talk too loud
It's too early to go home
This is no time to be alone

Something inside died today
Our last chance just slipped away
The blues this morning came to stay
There's nothing left to say

It's over now, my friend
It's over now, my friend
The child's dream's been swept away
What fools we must have been
For good or worse we've lost forever
What we were before
It's over - the light don't shine no more

They came to shake my hand
I don't want them to touch me now
They said, "Congratulations" but it's too late now
Where were they when I called?
How could they forget it all?

Didn't you get what you need?
The fight was lost, it wasn't meant to be
It isn't as hard for you to leave
There's no easy way for me

It's over now, my friend
It's over now, my friend
The child's dreams been swept away
What fools we must have been
For good or worse we've lost forever
What we were before
It's over, the light don't shine no more
It's over, the light don't shine no more
No more
It just don't shine no more
