"When The Lights Die" as written by and Alejandro Luis Manzano Fabian Rafael Manzano....
If you go now
Please leave the light on
Just say goodbye now and leave
With you gone now
You've turned the right to wrong
It's getting hard to breathe now

It goes on and on
But not in my head

This time
When the lights die
And there's nothing left to say
That's when you'll need me
This time
When the lights die
And there's no one else to blame
That's when you'll need me

If I break down
And you see me fading out
I know enough now to make it right
If I don't stop
I just keep on waiting up
Well I know enough to make it right

It goes on and on
But not in my head

This time
When the lights die
And there's nothing left to say
That's when you'll need me
This time
When the lights die
And there's no one else to blame
That's when you'll need me

And now
With the lights turned down
And your eyes half open
I know you don't see me
When I'm standing out
If you just turn around
And keep your eyes wide open
I know you might feel me here

I know you don't see me
You don't feel me
But keep your eyes wide open
Your eyes wide open

    General Comment I wrote this song in Orlando one night while we were tracking "Every Breath". I stepped away for a moment when the guys were recording their parts, 'and I found myself at a vintage wurlitzer piano in the studio's live room. The first thing that I played ended up becoming the opening riff to this song. And the words, if you go now, please leave the light on," instantly came to mind, because that was the last thing that my wife said to me before I had to leave her at home in Sarasota, a couple days prior. Life on the road can be tough on a relationship, and !hope she knows that her support keeps me going. Fabian
