Lamplight

This song is by The Clientele and appears on the album The Violet Hour (2003).

It's dark and it's a long way down
She said as she lay her head on the pillow
I took one step back
And I retired to evening

And the movie made me feel as if I wasn't here at all
And I drove home and I wound up all the windows in my car
In the lamplight I breathe
But the dark is falling in the garden over everything

John, I'm waiting for a morning filled with sunlight
When we can both drive away
Shake the dust right off my shoes
With younger friends and skies of blue like yesterday

John, I'm waiting for a morning filled with sunlight
When we can both drive away
Laughing friends and silent rides
And all the lovers that we lost are found again

I've been out walking in the verges and the quiet
Through all the traffic and the movement of the night
And the lamplight froze
Stopping so suddenly, hearing the dim radio
