There Is a Light That Never Goes Out
The Smiths Lyrics


Take me out tonight
Where there's music and there's people
And they're young and alive
Driving in your car
I never, never want to go home
Because I haven't got one
Anymore

Take me out tonight
Because I want to see people
And I want to see life
Driving in your car
Oh, please don't drop me home
Because it's not my home, it's their home
And I'm welcome no more

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine

Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere, I don't care
I don't care, I don't care
And in the darkened underpass
I thought, "Oh God, my chance has come at last"
But then a strange fear gripped me
And I just couldn't ask

Take me out tonight
Oh, take me anywhere, I don't care
I don't care, I don't care
Driving in your car
I never, never want to go home
Because I haven't got one, la-di-dum
Oh, I haven't got one
Oh, oh

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine

Oh, there is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out

Gustavo dos Santos Cabidelli

Take me out tonight
Where there's music and there's people
Who are young and alive
Driving in your car
I never, never want to go home
Because I haven't got one anymore

Take me out tonight
Because I want to see people
And I want to see lights
Driving in your car
Oh, please don't drop me home
Because it's not my home
It's their home
And I'm welcome no more

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine

Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care
And in the darkened underpass, I thought
Oh, God, my chance has come at last
But then a strange fear gripped me
And I just couldn't ask

Take me out tonight
Oh, take me anywhere
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven't got one, no, no, no
Oh, I haven't got one

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine

Oh, there is a light that never goes out
There is a light that never goes out
There is a light that never goes out
There is a light that never goes out

Its not at all depressing, it's one of eternal hope. Also, it's beyond me to explain why British artists capture emotions so perfectly.

SnowyPug

@Zeff T. F so real

James Mason

@Tuppenny eh? Rains 90 days a year where I live in England. Not even a third of the year in other words.

James Mason

@ayala banai if Ireland is the answer, why does Britain have a thousand times more talent for ten times the population?

cmfrtblynmb

For a nation of wankers, their music is amazing. Thank you Brits for all the music and literature.

Nappa Apricota

Maybe looking at Southern Cemetery frequently added to the mood.

This song actually makes you feel like death ain't that bad after all.

Dr.Berzerker

As long as it's by her side.

Me I

It's not, especially when you know about GOD. [Doesn't mean to take your own life away, just enjoy it. See the greatness, from weakness.]

Waldo Landorf

Nailed it. Only Morrissey could write a song about death that makes you happy.
