The Story Never Ends

When The Lights Go Out

Author: Troy
Theme: Love
Caught up in the taxes (Captured by computer)
Budgeting and wondering where the money goes
Talking past each other
Fighting off our enemies by telephone
When suddenly the darkness filled the room
And we (were soon)began to learn a thing or two
Of what life's about
When the lights when out

Fumbling for the flashlight
Candles, matches, anything to light the night
Craving for the TV, movies, the RADIO, the telephone
We realized we had nothing much to say
(Startled that we'd learned to live that way)
We'd become so comfortable that way
That would change somehow

CHORUS: When the lights (went) go out
Everything (got) gets clearer by the candlelight
When the lights go out
Something in your souls receives the second sight
You see things you never thought you'd see (never knew were there)
You dream of things that you forgot you dreamed
That's what life's about
When the lights go out

I saw why I fell in love with you
We made love like movie lovers do
But that's what life's about
When the lights go out

Too busy caring for our needs to care
