The Mr H Family Emporium II

Hamilton / Robinson Family Tree – the sequel

STANDING IN THE DARKNESS

STANDING IN THE DARKNESS

Standing on the outside

Wishing I was in

Wondering what I’m going to do

When the show begins

I wanted to be there tonight to see the guitar man

But when I came to the hall there was a full-house sign

I’m standing in the darkness

Wishing I was someplace else

 

I can hear the intro tape

The crowd begins to roar

The tears are rolling down my face

At the backstage door

The roadie says he’ll let me in if I treat him nice

And though I want to see the man I just can’t pay the price

Standing in the shadow

Wishing I was far away

 

SOLO

 

The rain comes down from the evening sky

To wash my tears away

I start to think about going home

To face another day

The drums beat on

The guitar wails

The bass man hits his lines

I head for home and on the way

I steal the full-house sign

Standing in the darkness

Waiting for tomorrow
