 The Lights Of Another World


The white neon lights flashed ‘OPEN'
Only thing that is, this time of night
Within sits a man, devoid of emotion
Face as pale as moonlight
Sounds of the waitress putting the chairs up
And the spoon swirling in the cup
She passes him by filling up the 1/2 drunk coffee
As he stares....

into the lights of another world

3hrs earlier down the great West road
A red Ford Escort, cruises past a silent neighbourhood
And scavenging urban foxes
Two shadows listening to the car radio
One thinking he'd take it back if he could
The other, looking out the window
At the darkened houses
Her lips trembling, her mouth curled
He looks straight on
he didn't mean to make her cry
she continued to stare....

into the lights of another world

One hour from home,
the red Ford Escort pulls over
He gets out and walked,
surprisingly the parks still open
The sound of the slamming car door,
Makes him turn towards her
classic FM, playing on the car radio...Bach
Her tears became screams
Her screams became silent
As she steps...

into the lights of another world

He didn't know how it happened
His words became actions in which he acted
Minutes became like years
Adrenalin got caught up in the excitement
As he just stood and looked at her
Staring......
 
into the lights of another world

The waitress gently touches his shoulder
telling him she's closing
No response.
The spoon,goes around and around
The sound of his ring
tapping the coffee mug
what was happening?
The blue and red sirens
speed past the flashing 'CLOSED' sign
The Waitress turns off all the lights,
asks him to leave
He gets up, coat, tightly drawn around him
As the winds outside whirled
He wipes away his tears
with his blood stained sleeve, Staring....

into the lights, of another world!
