After The Lights Go Out
As the [C]sun goes down my [Bb]silent little room is growing [C]dim[Bb]
And the [C]man next door is [Bb]saying what a lousy day it's [C]been[Bb]
And the [G]clock on the wall, I'd [F]like to put its ticking to an [C]end[Bb]
In the [C]room below the [Bb]girl is crying for her guy a[C]gain
[F]After the lights go out, w[Ab]hat will I do?
[F]After the lights go out, f[Ab]acing the n[G]ight without y[C]ou[Bb]
There's a pigeon that's been sittin' on my window-sill all day
I guess he's lonely too, I wonder if his love has flown away
When I get upon my feet I need a cup of coffee anyway
Someone called for you but I hung up the 'phone - what could I say?
I don't look for her, I find her in the shadow of my mind
For she's just a girl whose memory will be wiped away with time
Any second now, the lamp down the street will show its light
And I just can't seem to tear away her kisses from the night
Facing the night without you...
