lyrics

I'm feeling the night on the highway
I like to watch the street lights
The ones with warm incandescents
That glow so softly

Like the stars in the sky they shine just for me
I know that that seems selfish
It's just that I know that bright lights shine
For those who look upon them

But somebody told me that the world's gone to shit
And in part he blamed the street lights
Y'know the ones that I love
Oh now what

I guess those inefficient bulbs should go
But damn I'll miss their feeling
Like a pathetic crush might miss
An unloving touch

It must be okay that the warm lights are going for good
Because I know that the warm lights are bad for our futures
Oh it's too bad that they're bad for our

Futures can be bright even without the warm lights
There's still the glow from the colours in our eyes
And the glow from that place that is far away
To keep us warm

Oh I often think that I shouldn't have let them go
But how was I supposed to know
That that place that's far away isn't real
Or it might as well not be

It must be okay that the warm lights are going for good
Because I know that the warm lights are bad for our futures
And I swear that I want what is best for our futures
