Lyrics

THE DARK BY THE WINDOW

In the dark by the window she watches the night
Laughing young couples pass through the street light
She closes her eyes
The first to be chosen, the last off the floor
Now nobody asks her to dance...anymore

Night after night in the dark by the window
As the lights of the town start to glow
She dreams of a time when
There was laughter and young men
Quietly wonders where did it all go

Shadowy silhouettes sway in her mind
She hums an old song, three-quarter time
She closes her eyes
Twirls once around crossing the floor
No one there to ask her to dance
Nobody asks her to dance...anymore

Night after night in the dark by the window
As the lights of the town start to glow
She dreams of a time when
There was laughter and young men
Quietly wonders where did it ll go

She slips into a nightgown, unbuckles her hair
Goes back to the dark by the window
To wait out the long... long night
