You stand on the floor all night,
and your friends stand under the light.
The medicine rolls around your eyes,
and you feel it every time.

The light comes on, the light comes on,
the darkness fades away.
The light comes on, the light comes on,
for most of every day.

Only to be with you,
down alone on the avenue.
Only to be with you,
down alone on the avenue.

You ride home in the dark under the moon,
see that golden hillside burn,
and I know I'll see you soon.
Your eyes maybe cut like glass,
and your words fall out of the sun.
Chains unfurl as days do pass,
and I feel your heart on the run.

The light comes on, the light comes on,
the darkness fades away.
The light comes on, the light comes on,
for most of every day.

Only to be with you,
down alone on the avenue.
Only to be with you,
down alone on the avenue.

You ride home in the dark under the moon,
see that golden hillside burn,
and I know I'll see you soon.
You ride home in the dark under the moon,
see that golden hillside burn,
and I know I'll see you soon.

You see that frozen hillside burn like gold,
And the day will come too soon.
You see that frozen hillside burn like gold,
And the day will come too soon.
