The Counterfactuals – Look Up At The Light Lyrics

Look up at the light of the street lamp before it goes out
Out on the street we were laughing we were having a shout
Oh me I love the truth, ‘less it’s likely to get in my way
Oh you, you love lies, they make sure you’ve got something to say

I once knew a boy that was certain of the state of his mind
He once met a girl whose sweet love was what made him go blind
“Boy you’re better off dead, than apart with a mind of your own.”
“Ah girl,” he said, I was nothing when I was alone

We look up to the sky, watch the birds as they’re flying away
I’m holding your hand, not too tight see I’m ready to play
Oh I’ve heard it before, that the birds will be back every year
You just heard the bells, and they bring back the worst of your fears

The moon has gone by and we’re sitting here time out of mind
The nights are too long, but the nights are when I feel fine

Saturday night, and we’re dancing to songs oh so slow
You brushed out your hair, so the spins and the twirls would show
You spin, and you spin, while the world around settles down
I’m holding on tight, just to keep you down close to the ground

I mean what I say, and I’m fond of the clothes on my back
I’m ready to play, so you work to keep me off the track
Oh my, my sweet love, will you ever just say it out loud?
Oh my, my sweet love, are you open or are you too proud?

The moon has gone by and we’re sitting here time out of mind
The nights are too long, but the nights are when I feel fine
