Gary Alt: Listen

Shine a Light

(©2013 Gary Alt)
I called all the numbers on the bathroom wall
but none of them was yours
Looking for clues that'll bring back the high
You showed me your revolving door
So I try, and I try, and I keep on trying
groping for the switch in the dark
Keeping on digging 'til I find out
if you can bite as strong as you bark

Shine a Light

Kick in the jewels girl is all I need
Don’t leave me bleeding on the floor
I ain’t deaf and baby you ain’t dumb
Don’t beat around the bush anymore
And I cry, and I cry, and I keep on crying
crying just to get outta you
Keep all the silence if it’s gold to yourself
Have a heart and gimme a clue

Shine a Light
