When The Lights Go Out (Springsteen Bruce)

Now you say you have a friend, you trust him with your life You trust him with your money, you trust him with your kids You'd even trust him with your wife You better watch what's goin' on when the lights are out When the night is dark, when there ain't nobody lookin' around Yeah when the lights are out, down in this dirty little town Well now the world is dark and funny, better listen up to what I say You ain't gonna know what's going on by what you see in the light of day You gotta watch what's goin' on when the lights are out When the night is dark, when there ain't nobody lookin' around Yeah when the lights are out in this dirty little town Now you swear that she trusted you Within reason I understand But you kept slippin' in late at night And in the mornin' you had that smell on your hands Well now the world is turning, Rome is burning Me, I'm watching and I'm learning They say sure as God's hand and the tickin' of the clock The lord's light'll shine under every slimy rock Well last night I slept the sleep of fear And I heard God's voice whisper in my ear He said you better watch what's going on when the lights are out When the night is dark, when there ain't nobody lookin' around Yeah when the lights are out, down in this dirty little town
