There’s a room in a house on a street in this town where I’ve left a little history

Everybody’s got a place that they go back to or a place that they just can’t be

Growing up my mom would call us home from the corner of the street

Seems like every little thing that I’ve done since was a promise that I could not keep

The light tonight is fading fast when the lamp lights lead us home

There is nothing ever felt so good, so sad, so sweet, so gone

Well my father worked down at Morris’ yard out past the railroad tracks

Where the freight train wheels would whine like dogs that got caught up in a trap

He taught me how to be a man in a thousand quiet ways

And there are things your learn from factory men that they never need to say

The light tonight is fading fast when the lamp lights lead us home

There is nothing ever felt so good, so sad, so sweet, so gone

So there’s a girl in a room in house somewhere and I don’t see her these days

She’s got the light of December in her eyes, she’s like August when she sways

Now everybody’s got their secrets, everybody’s got their sins

I wish I’d let you carve me up, I wish you’d let me in

And we’re all bathed in the dust and the rubble of the consequences of our past

If I gave you my hand, would you pull me out because these days goes by so fast?

The light tonight is fading fast when the lamp lights lead us home

There is nothing ever felt so good, so sad, so sweet, so gone

The light goes out and the sky turns black now that everybody’s gone

There is nothing ever felt so good, so sad, so sweet, so long

So Long
