And every ray of light that shines at night is only neon…

Everything as of now. The last words of Lesley Gore by Gena Rowlands Band.
Awesome, awesome song.

 

May I leave this party now? I think this party’s at an end for me
All the friends I love are gone and it’s been years since I’ve seen family

And every ray of light that shines at night is only neon
And every song I know is from a car that’s passing by
I used to think that maybe I could turn this party over
But may I cut the lights and shut my eyes?

May I leave this party now? I forget now why I came here
Someone promised something grand, but promise ran out with the cold beer

And every ray of light that shines at night is only butane
And every song I know is in Swahili on shortwave
I used to think that maybe I could dance on all the tables
But now I know I’m really not that brave
May I leave this party now?

It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to…

And every ray of light that shines at night is only neon
And every song I know is from a car that’s passing by
I used to think that maybe I could turn this party over
But may I cut the lights and shut my eyes?

May I leave this party now? I forget now why I came here
Someone promised something grand. Promises, promises…

May I leave this party now?

zackAnd every ray of light that shines at night is only neon…
