I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight
Richard & Linda Thompson Lyrics


I'm so tired of working every day
Now the weekend's come
I'm gonna throw my troubles away
If you've got the cab fare, mister, you'll do all right
I want to see the bright lights tonight

Meet me at the station, don't be late
I need to spend some money and it just won't wait
Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight

There's crazy people running all over town
There's a silver band, just marching up and down
And the big boys are all spoiling for a fight
I want to see the bright lights tonight

Meet me at the station, don't be late
I need to spend some money and it just won't wait
Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight

A couple of drunken nights rolling on the floor
Is just the kind of mess I'm looking for
I'm gonna dream 'till Monday comes in sight
I want to see the bright lights tonight

Meet me at the station, don't be late
I need to spend some money and it just won't wait
Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight

Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight

I'm so tired of working every day
Now the weekend's come
I'm gonna throw my troubles away
If you've got the cab fare, mister, you'll do all right
I want to see the bright lights tonight
Meet me at the station, don't be late
I need to spend some money and it just won't wait
Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight
There's crazy people running all over town
There's a silver band, just marching up and down
And the big boys are all spoiling for a fight
I want to see the bright lights tonight
Meet me at the station, don't be late
I need to spend some money and it just won't wait
Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight
A couple of drunken nights rolling on the floor
Is just the kind of mess I'm looking for
I'm gonna dream 'till Monday comes in sight
I want to see the bright lights tonight
Meet me at the station, don't be late
I need to spend some money and it just won't wait
Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight
Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight

An underrated song, unfortunately rarely heard these days.

Duke Craig

Another example of why the 70's was so much better.

Martin Ridgway

She-Hulk: Season 1, last episode; couldn't believe they featured it!

Per-Olof Wiktorsson

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City

Ralph Jackson

Yes. My mum was playing one of his (their) albums on one of my recent visits.

I'm 24 and live in the far south suburbs of Chicago. I've always been a record buff and I've played this song for friends, girlfriends and family alike, both who enjoyed it. I had the honor to see Richard at Park West a couple years ago. Brilliant. This is the anthem of my life right now. God bless Richard and Linda!

I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight is one of the most important albums released in 1974. Period!

White Tigress

Bone weary. This tune is still fortifying. For starters, it is inspiring to hear so many musicians getting work. Musicians continue to save my life. At present, they are the ones who help me steel myself for the long, long, long, long, long working week. Do you understand how valuable you are? Understand and keep playing.

Ian Rastall

Hell yeah.

Corey Kauffman

Leon's wake up song. I feel it every morning.
