So you had a little lesson on life today
Learned a little bit about the real way
Took a little trip to the darker side
Initiation to lust, greed, and lies

I'm sorry to hear that
My broken friend
Shall we sit and wait up for the end?

Now she acts like she never cared
Gave back the doll you won at the fair
Gave back the letters
And the pictures and things
Only kept the pearls
And the unpaid ring

This ain't no book, man
It's real life
No perfect love, no starry nights

What can we do?
After the lights go out
We're still not through
After the lights go out

We all knew long time ago
But we let your dreams
Live a few weeks more
While you were home
And reading Krantz
She was out dancing every dance

This ain't no book, man
It's real life
No perfect love, no starry nights

What can we do?
After the lights go out
We're still not through
After the lights go out

What can we do?
After the lights go out
We're still not through
After the lights go out

Can't your reach exceed your grasp?
Quit those tears, get off your ass
Can't tell for sure if future looks bright
But you can't paralyze last night

This ain't no book, man
It's real life
No perfect love, no starry nights

What can we do?
After the lights go out
We're still not through
After the lights go out

What can we do?
After the lights go out
What can we do?
After the lights go out
