"The Lights Go Down" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
One day,I gotta get out of here,
I gotta make everything clear
I gotta see you.
I know,the way that I feel is wrong,so wrong.
But I gotta carry on, when you ain't around.

I believe things are going wrong,
And the night goes on and on,
All your dreams have flown away,
And the sun won't shine today

[Chorus]
The lights go down,
The lights go down,
The lights go down, and there's no one around.

I know,you're waiting so close to me,
But how will you ever see, as time rolls away,
Lonely, but tryin' to be so proud,
And just as I turn around, the lights go down.

I believe things are going wrong,
And the night goes on and on,
All your dreams have flown away,
And the sun won't shine today

[Chorus]

    General CommentStill one of my favorite albums of all time and I first bought it the year it came out. The story of the whole album is like Buck Rogers without the action. Your typical fish out of water story. Guy from 1981 ends up in the future . While there , does he remain loyal when he still has urges? Those nocturnal urges? Great rhythm and instruments too.
