beacons of light

 

Brand new shoes in my hand, beacons of light


barefoot on the pavement, don't know my left from right

 


She strolled dressed up in flames


gave me the hots


She's the coolest of dames


but she burns what she spots

 


Benumbed and deluted, beacons of light


lonely uprooted, trail in the night


What else is there to hang on to?


She would'nt notice me dead


but those beacons of light do


and send my shadow ahead

 


Stumbling all alone, following the beacons of light


Drift about home; it's hard to get there but I might


See me all alone; the city’s streetlights shine so bright 

 


You ain't goodlooking cause you shut me out


I will be out if sight once you treat me right


in the spot, in the midst of the crowd


reflecting the glances from the people of the night


Beacons of light, get me out of site


Trail in the night, pale beacons of light


Stumble home alright, I'm really out of sight
