The Changing Lights

Album: After The Disco (2014)
  • What did the storm wash away
    Are you bailing out, out of the plans we've already made
    It won't bother me now, and you know I'll be okay
    You gotta lead your life, but you're not sure you know the way
    Well you want to walk in white, you wanna sin but you're too shy
    So the candle just keeps burning down on you

    My cards are on the table, I'm here tonight
    And I don't need anything from you
    Down on the bowery, the changing lights
    And I'll still be waiting here for you

    I saw that look on your face
    You don't need me now, and sometimes you wonder if it's off
    Just another mistake, and why can't you just walk away
    You gotta measure the cost, what do you gain, what have you lost
    Lay off and wonder why, you wanna win but you won't fight
    So the candle just keeps burning down on you

    My cards are on the table, I'm here tonight
    But I don't need anything from you
    Down on the bowery, the changing lights
    And I'll still be waiting here for you

    My cards are on the table, I'm here tonight
    But I don't need anything from you
    Down on the bowery, the changing lights
    And I'll still be waiting here for you Writer/s: JAMES MERCER, BRIAN BURTON
