darkness ’til dawn lyrics – carly simon

chain smoking cigarettes
enemies across the table
wonderin’ if i can ever trust anyone again

we argue through the night
the restaurant shuts
you catch your flight
i hail a cab with no idea where home might be

we both believed my chance was gone
but ain’t it strange how life goes on
a storm can never rage forever
and darkness only lasts ’til dawn

hotel blinds stay drawn
nothing seems to make me care
i can’t find a reason to comb my hair

folks walkin’ in the street
everyone has something to do
my brain won’t stop showin’ those old movies of you

we both believed my chance was gone
but ain’t it strange how life goes on
a storm can never rage forever
and darkness only lasts ’til dawn

weeks p*ss
and your voice sounds strange on the telephone
strange how smooth and casual my own voice sounds
i find that i’m listening to
a tune coming over my radio
it makes me think of a guy i knew a while ago
a while ago a while ago
