I drove into the night to lay my head down
In a dingy room in a nowhere town
I'm gonna make it some day, I just don't know how
But this is how it all goes down

I drove all day into another town
Where they were singing my songs, you'd have been so proud
The story's always better when there's someone around
But this is how it all goes down.

So before you fall asleep tonight
Please think of me before you turn out the lights
Before you fall asleep tonight
Please think of me before you turn out the lights
The lights are always on

I woke up last night from the oddest dream
Was finally living my life the way I meant it to be
But you weren't there and it wasn't a dream
It was just so unreal that that's how it seemed
And this is how it all goes down

We can catch up later when I finally get home
I can square with the guilt of leaving you alone
Because you're not here, this is not a dream
But we're finally getting close to how I meant things to be
We are getting so close to how I meant for things to be

The lights are always on
And this is how it all goes down

The lights are always on
This is how it all goes down

The lights
