Shut Out the Lights

Album: Get Closer (2010)
  • Let's gettin' to the point, we're not even listening anymore!
    We're just walking around in circles, and wearing holes out on the floor
    I'm tired; I know you're tired and it's late,
    And it's almost four.

    And what are we trying to achieve, baby?
    What are we trying to win?
    I said the same thing three hours ago,
    And now I'm saying it again.
    And I know you and I well enough to know,
    Neither one of us is giving in!

    [Chorus]
    Baby, I love you I'm not going to bed angry,
    And baby, I need and I want you to be happy,
    We've been going around in circles with no end in sight!
    Maybe we should just
    Shut off the lights,
    And wait till the morning!
    Shut off the lights,
    Wait till the morning!

    It's amazing all the old wounds
    We still carry around,
    Wait to bring 'em all up, when it all comes down.
    Like it's coming down now!

    [Chorus]

    Cause I don't wanna lose you,
    And I don't wanna hate you,
    I don't wanna feel that
    There's times I make you say
    Things you don't mean
    In the heat of the moment
    In the heat of the moment

    Baby, I love you I'm not going to bed angry,
    And baby, I need and I want you to be happy,
    We've been going around in circles, we're going around in circles, going around in circles
    With no end in sight!
    Maybe we should just
    Shut off the lights,
    And wait till the morning!
    Shut off the lights,
    Wait till the morning!
    Shut off the lights,
    Wait till the morning!
    C'mon baby, c'mon
    Give it some time
    Just a little bit of time
    It'll be alright
    In the morning light
    'Cause I need you, I need you, I need you Writer/s: KEITH LIONEL URBAN, MONTY POWELL
