Styx – Lights lyrics

I heard the knock on my door
I heard the ring of the bell
I got the letter
But I couldn't go
So many thoughts in my head
So many places to be
So many faces that I long to see
Standing in front of me
To night the lights will take me where I long to be
Just like a thousand nights before

Somebody said to me
Why do you do this to you
Why not sit back and relax
Go to the Isalnds and forget it all
Slow down
You're moving too fast
You seem afraid it won't last
Take my advice
Go straight and settle down

Thank you for caring
Tonight the lights will take me where I long to be
Just like a thousand nights before
I can't explain
It gives me some pain

Give me the lights
Precious lights
Give me the lights
Give me my hope
Give me my energy
You can turn the wrong into right
Precious lights
Illuminate me
Won't you let me play

Give me the lights
