​The Lights Go Down

This song is by Electric Light Orchestra and appears on the album Time (1981).

The lights go down

One day
I gotta get out of here
I gotta make everything clear
I gotta see you, oh, oh

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

The lights go down (I want you, baby)
The lights go down (I need you, baby)
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 trying 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

The lights go down (I want you, baby)
The lights go down (I need you, baby)
The lights go down
And there's no one around

The lights go down (I want you, baby)
The lights go down (I need you, baby)
The lights go down
And there's no one around

The lights go down (I want you, baby)
The lights go down (I need you, baby)
The lights go down (I want you, baby)
The lights go down (I need you, baby)
