"Lights Go Down" as written by Felix Major Buxton, Simon Ratcliffe and Linda Lewis....
When the lights go down
That's when we bust just a little
Bust just a little more
When the lights go down, down
That's when I die just a little
Wanna get high just a little more

When the curtain falls
And there's no more applause
When the party's over
And there's no one to hold ya
Look inside yourself and find
Your own light in your mind

When the lights go down
That's when we bust just a little
Bust just a little more
When the lights go down
That's when I die just a little
Wanna get high just a little more

When the curtain falls
And there's no more applause
When the party's over
And there's no one to hold ya
Look inside yourself and find
Your own light in your mind

When the lights go down
That's when we bust just a little
Bust just a little more
When the lights go down
That's when I die just a little
Wanna get high just a little more

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs i've ever heard.

    It's obviously about the loneliness that a performer feels when they are no longer onstage.

    When performing - you have a feeling that everybody loves you and wants to know you but as soon as the lights go down and the curtains close, you realise that you are in fact extremely lonely.

    As a stand-up comedian, I often play this track on my way home from gigs to tell myself that other people feel exactly the same as me.

    BTW i hear

    That's when it Bites just a little, Bites just a little more.

    which is referring to the loneliness biting into you.

    General CommentI believe that this song applies to everyone, a feeling of being totally alone and shut out to the world.

    Like bed time, with the lights off and you actually have no company but your own thoughts.
