Endless Night

This song is by Graham Parker & The Rumour and appears on the album The Up Escalator (1980).

I had the time, but I blew it
I had the power, and I knew it
Had the energy, but outgrew it
The identity, but saw through it

Yeah

I had the walk, but got trampled
Had the taste, it was sampled
Had the engine, dismantled
Had the flame, but no candle

I can't bear to see how it all looks in the light, keep it hidden now

If I could only find a switch that turns on the endless night
That turns on the endless night
That turns on the endless night
That turns on the endless night

If there's a wire, must cross it
If there's a coin, must toss it
If it's dirt, can't wash it
It's my head, just don't cosh it

There's a door, but they shut it
We all bleed, they cut it
It's so dark when you don't fit
It's a gauntlet, you gotta run it

Oh baby

I can't bear to see how it all looks in the light, keep it hidden now

If I could only find a switch that turns on the endless night
That turns on the endless night
That turns on the endless night

Turn on the endless
Turn on the endless
Turn on the endless

If there's a cross, then bear it
If there's a loss, then share it
If there's a risk let's dare it
If it's blindness, outstare it

I can't bear to see how it all looks in the light, keep it hidden baby

If I could only find a switch that turns on the endless night
That turns on the endless night
That turns on the endless night
That turns on the endless night
That turns on the endless night
Let's turn on the endless night
Let's turn on the endless night
