Electric Light Orchestra – The Lights Go Down lyrics

One day,I gotta get out of here,
I gotta make everything clear
I gotta see you.
I know,the way that I feel is wrong,so wrong.
But I gotta carry on, when you ain't around.

I believe things are going wrong,
And the night goes on and on,
All your dreams have flown away,
And the sun won't shine today

[Chorus]
The lights go down,
The lights go down,
The lights go down, and there's no one around.

I know,you're waiting so close to me,
But how will you ever see, as time rolls away,
Lonely, but tryin' to be so proud,
And just as I turn around, the lights go down.

I believe things are going wrong,
And the night goes on and on,
All your dreams have flown away,
And the sun won't shine today

[Chorus]
