Lyrics
Watch The Sun Rise
(lyrics by Jimmy Nace)

I know the party is over but right now I wish I could stay
Iíd like to say why donít you come over but I should just be on my way.
So turn off those neons and pour one real strong, this night is gonna be long.
Iíll pack up my memories and takeíem all home and Iíll watch the sun rise alone.

From the first song of the evening to the last drink in the glass
Some things are too good to last.

So slow your life is unwinding and it hurts every time you look back
So turn off that juke box and give me one last call.
This night is gonna be long.
Iíll pack up my memories and takeíem all home
and Iíll watch the sun rise alone.

Bridge:
   I look out my window that faces the East
   and wait for the dawn to resuce me
   I used to think that I wanted to be free
   Now it donít mean that much to me.

Things could be worse this ainít so bad
You just learn to swallow your pride
But all of the people in this lonely crowd
Canít shake this hollow feeling inside.
So tell one more story and put your walkiní shoes on
This night is gonna be long
Iíll pack up my memories and takeíem all home
And Iíll watch the sun rise alone.
