"The Big Light [Live][*]" as written by and Elvis Costello....
Oh well I had a little feeling to have a big night
And I woke up feeling small and not so brave and not quite right
Had to face of who am I, where is she, what did I do
Worst of all I had to face the big light

'Cause the big light came through my window and it opened up my eyelids
And it snapped them up like roller blinds and told me things that I did
I can't face another day and night of good ideas and complications
And I'm thankful that I didn't open another bottle of inspiration, well

With the hangover this morning had a personality
And I cast my shattered mind over selected memories
I didn't even touch the light switch so I knew I'd never see
The haggard face that would be staring back at me

'Cause the big light came through my window and it opened up my eyelids
But it snapped them up like roller blinds and told me things that I did
I can't face another day and night of good ideas and complications
And I'm thankful that I didn't open another bottle of inspiration

I had a little feeling to have a big time
And I woke up to alarm bells like a big church chime
I had to face the who am I, who is she, what did I do
First of all I had to face the big light

The big light came through my window and it opened up my eyelids
And it snapped them up like roller blinds and told me things that I did
I can't face another day and night of good ideas and complications
And I'm thankful that I didn't open another bottle of inspiration

Oh well it's fine to go out and have a big night
But sooner or later you're got to face the big light
