Song Lyrics

Green light, 7-Eleven
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes
You don’t smoke, don’t even want to
Hey now, check your change
Dressed up like a car crash
The wheels are turning but you’re upside down

You say when he hits you, you don’t mind
Because when he hurts you, you feel alive
Oh now, is that what it is

Red lights, grey morning
You stumble out of a hole in the ground
A vampire or a victim
It depends on who’s around
You used to stay in to watch the adverts
You could lip synch with the talk show host

And if you look, you look through me
And when you talk, you talk at me
And when I touch you, you don’t feel a thing

If I could stay, then the night would give you up / Oh-oh-oh
If I could stay, then the day would keep its trust / Oh-oh-oh
If I could stay, then the night would be enough / Oh-oh-oh

Faraway, so close
Up with the static and the radio waves
With satellite television
You can go anywhere
Miami, New Orleans
London, Belfast, and Berlin

And if you listen, I can’t call
And if you jump, you just might fall
And if you shout, I’ll only hear you

If I could stay, then the night would give you up / Oh-oh-oh
If I could stay, then the day would keep its trust / Oh-oh-oh
If I could stay with the demons you drown / Oh-oh-oh
Stay with the spirit I found / Oh-oh-oh
Stay and the night would be enough / Oh-oh-oh

Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Three o’clock in the morning
It’s quiet and there’s no one around
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel hits the ground…hits the ground
