"Television Light" as written by and Marshall Crenshaw....
Television light
Shining through a hundred bedroom windows
I was out last night
Walking all around the streets that we know
Tales to tell are behind every door
No two are quite the same
You and I know a few of our own, that's for sure
Days and days have gone

But I still clearly can remember
A crowded avenue
On a Monday evening in November
On our way to your old place downtown
You held my hand tight
There was light and laughter and music all around

What I wouldn't wish for nearly came true
To throw your love away
Was what I didn't want to do
It's written on my heart, the way I feel for you
To make your bitter tears fall
Was what I didn't want to do
What I didn't want to do

Television light
Shining through a hundred bedroom windows
I went out last night
Walking all around the streets that we know
Sometimes love will bring you down one day
Then back up another day
Make you right, make you wrong, make you do it anyway

What I didn't wish for nearly came true
To throw your love away
Was what I didn't want to do
I truly realize now what I already knew
To make your bitter tears fall
Was what I didn't want to do
What I didn't want to do

Sometimes love will bring you down one day, and back up another day
Make you right, make you wrong, make you do it anyway
What I wouldn't wish for, nearly came true
To throw your love away, is what I didn't want to do
It's written on my heart, the way I feel for you
To make your bitter tears fall, is what I didn't want to do
What I didn't want to do

    General Commentseeing the glow through their window, wondering if they're okay...
    ... sometimes you've hurt someone too much to see them again... even if you never meant to do them harm.
