I walked you to the corner
We stood beside the bus
And the tears rolled down our faces
As the driver stared at us
Typical summer that time of year
When you go back to Toronto and I stay here

And I'll miss the way you wake up
And the way that you sigh
And I'll miss the way you turn your head away when you cry
I don't think this time will fly

And here comes sad nights again
Here comes sad nights again

'Round about midnight when it's still too hot to think
We'll go back down to the neighborhood and get ourselves a drink
Everyday working, not gettin' far
No, this town ain't much for startin' up, it's only made for stars

Later when I'm walking
Underneath the starless sky
There's a couple in a doorway and I think I hear them cry
But they turn their heads when I go by

And here comes sad nights again
Here comes sad nights again

Last days of summer, San Gennaro Feast
There's music hangin' in the air, dancing in the streets
People line the corners and they stand beside the fires
And I'm watchin' from my window as the sparks go by

And somewhere there's a gunshot
People scatter everywhere
It happens everyday so there's still laughter in the air
As I lay down I wish you were here

And here comes sad nights again
Here comes sad nights again

Here comes sad nights again
