We speak out like children
Of the dreams that we chase and pursue
These rights we hold precious
Say it loud enough and it'll be true

In the company of strangers
Wild conversation and the hours go by so fast
And you find a lot of wisdom there
At the bottom of the glass

But when the lights go down
And the laughter fades away
Somewhere beneath
The moon and stars, yeah

All of life's certainties they
They all just slip away
And you lie down in God's shadow
At the end, the end of the day

We speak revolution
But the future's already been sold
The masters of diffusion
Spinning their fine webs into gold
And the party's just begun

This matter of resistance
Our ship was built to last
We're sailing out on troubled seas
Nail your colors to the mast

But when the lights go down
And the laughter fades away
Somewhere beneath
The moon and stars, yeah

All of life's certainties they
They all just slip away
And you lie down in God's shadow
At the end, the end of the day

The avenue is so crowded
And they're turning up the heat
And the red lights keep on flashing
Out there tonight on Bourbon Street
On Bourbon Street

Wild conversation
And the hours go by so fast
And you find a lot of wisdom there
At the bottom of the glass
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

But when the lights go down
And the laughter fades away
Somewhere beneath
The moon and stars

All of life's certainties they
They all just slip away
And you lie down in God's shadow
At the end, the end of the day

The end of the day
The end of the day
The end of the day
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Lay down your soul with me
Lay down your soul, tonight
Lay down your soul with me
And everything will be alright
It'll be alright
