Lonesome night light
Ask the night light what I do
Blue or white light
Ask the night light to tell you
How they passed each other on the stairs
Some in a daze and some ashamed
Love in shambles, love in tears
Some even glad they came.
Mostly cheap things
From my night flings and forays
Forty more score
Looking for more fun and games
Passing each other on the stairs
Young going up, old coming down
Some destructive some in tears
Leaving without a sound.
ask the night light
Is the time right to disappear
I want someone
Who knows someone
To tell someone I’m not here.
