keep the lights shining~by Britta Hoffmann


 

 

keep the lights shining

there are people who don’t care
who don’t react to whatever you might do
even if it would be easy to
and it would be even fair

so we have had another hard day
and just want to go and sleep
but this is when we’re in trouble deep
lights shining into our window – so it’s awake we have to stay

keep the lights shining every day
we don’t need sleep – awake we stay
the light just keeps going our way
no matter what we choose to say

so we try to take a walk
go to our neighbours to just talk
try to make them understand
turning them off at night could give us a helping hand

no reaction, the keep them on
and we try to look away
trying to get some sleep during the day
for at night there’s sometimes none

keep the lights shining every day
we don’t need sleep – awake we stay
the light just keeps going our way
no matter what we choose to say

at times we wish we had a remote control
it would give a bit of relief to our soul
it’s not much to ask to keep off this light
so we could spend a peaceful night

maybe sometime we find something to do
something we maybe should have done before
just make sure they have closed the door
and see that they don’t have a clue

keep the lights shining every day
we don’t need sleep – awake we stay
the light just keeps going our way
no matter what we choose to say

keep our lights on then every day
keeping the sleep far away
they don’t need sleep – and so we play
we will see what they’ll have to say
