I have seen the lights out of the windows.
I have seen the lights of the city.
I have seen the lights go out
I have seen the darkness come over the city,
Over the buildings, and
Over the river, and
Over my eyes.
Just flip the fucking switch for me!
I never want to see darkness again!
Turn the lights on forever!
I beg you!
I plead and
I scream so loud
For the lights of the city to shine on me forever.
I do not want to die in the dark.
Show me the light!
Keep the city lights on forever and ever.
