When The Bright Lights Grow Dim

print

I’m the laugh of the party out every night
Ain’t got a worry but then
The people who say I’m carefree and gay
Don’t know how I’m lonely when the bright lights grow dim

People think cause I’m laughing the past is behind
But they don’t know the sorrow within’
A heart that is hurtin’ in a man bound by pride
Who cries for an old love when the bright lights grow dim

When the party has ended the laughter has died
And I think of our parting again
The smile leaves my face and tears take its place
I cry for you darling when the bright lights grow dim

So until you return I’ll keep wearing a mask
That will hide how I’m feeling within
So if your lonely too I’ll be right there with you
I’ll be thinking of you dear when the bright lights grow dim
