lyrics

Lights are coming on in every street in town
I love to sit and watch the sun go down
I never knew a darker shade of blue
Until I lost the sweetest thing I’d found
Well, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes

Cracking up while the world is cracking down
I can't get my feet back on the ground
If there was a way to be with you today
I'd stay with you and watch the stars spin round
Well, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes

Back on the streets again
Back in defeat again
Back where the lights of love go rushing by
Back on the road again
Back on my own again
I wish I could be where the sun is high
I’d love to see you when the sun is high

Wind is coming up, sends shivers down my spine
Midnight’s gonna stay with me, the perfect time
And all that I can do is sit and think of you
And wish there was a way that I could make you mine
Well, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes

Back on the streets again
Back in defeat again
Back where the lights of love go rushing by
Back on the road again
Back on my own again
I wish I could be where the sun is high
I’d love to see you when the sun is high
