"Coles Corner" as written by and Richard Willis Hawley....
Hold back the night from us,
Cherish the light for us,
Don't let the shadows hold back the dawn.

Cold city lights glowing,
The traffic of life is flowing,
Out over the rivers and on into dark.

I'm going down town where there's music,
I'm going where voices fill the air,
Maybe there's someone waiting for me
With a smile and a flower in her hair

[Chorus:]
I'm going down town where there's people
The loneliness hangs in the air.
With no-one there real waiting for me,
No smile, no flower nowhere.

Cold city lights glowing,
The traffic of life is flowing,
Out over the rivers and on into dark

Hold back the night from us,
Cherish the light for us,
Don't let the shadows hold back the dawn.

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

Hold back the night

    General Commentcoles corner's named after a club where prospective couples met up for dates, and i'm assuming this is written from a perspective where he has went to coles corner, but nobody's there waiting for him

    beautiful song, amazing album.

    General Commentthis song is so sad... i love it! so, he's gone out to this club kind of in the hopes that someone's going to be there who will kind of break the boredom in his life, someone to stop him being lonely... but she's not there. well, anyway, it's a great song! x
