Kim Carnes – It's Not The Spotlight lyrics
(Barry Goldberg/Gerry Golfin)

If I ever feel the light again shinin' down on me
I don't have to tell you what a welcome it will be
I felt the light before but I let it slip away
But I still keep on believin' that it'll come back some day

It's not the spotlight
And it's not the camera light
And it's not the streetlight of some old street of dreams
It ain't the moonlight
Not even the sunlight
But I've seen it shining in your eyes
And you know what I mean

Sometimes I try to tell myself the light was never real
Just a fantasy that used to be the way I used to feel
But you and I know better now
Even though it's been so long
If your memory really server you well
You'll never tell me that I'm wrong

It's not the spotlight
And it's not the camera light
And it's not the streetlight of some old street of dreams
It ain't the moonlight
Not even the sunlight
But I've seen it shining in your eyes
And you know what I mean

If I ever feel the light again things will have to change
Names and faces homes and places will have to be rearranged
And you can help it come about
If your're ever so inclined
Ain't no rhyme or reason
Why a woman can't change her mind

It's not the spotlight
And it's not the camera light
And it's not the streetlight of some old street of dreams
It ain't the moonlight
Not even the sunlight
But I've seen it shining in your eyes
And you know what I mean
