Party Lights Lyrics

by Janis Ian

Party lights
Is there anybody here tonight?
Doesnt anybody have a light?
I invite your party life

Party lights
Champagne and Caviar
Cocaine and Shalimar
Dont push too far, your party lights

People tell me that I'm fading fast
I cant last the whole night through
Everybody, now its closing time
I cant find my way to you

Dont lose your head
Remember all those things
Your mama said
But every vampire here appears well-fed
You look half-dead, they like you, kid

Party games
Somebody pinned a needle in me
And I went insane
Walking on the edge of the line
In the driving rain
I felt no pain its a hell of a game

People tell me theres an end to this
But one last kiss turns into two
Everybody cant leave now
I dont know how to make it through

Heady wine youre moving too slow for me
Cant keep time
Watching the silent movie for a sign
In my prime heady wine

You move too slow, I'm drowning
Dont let go I'm drowning
And I cant say no keep it low
Its a hell of a show

People tell me that I'm fading fast
I cant last the whole night through
Everybody, now its closing time
I cant find my way to you
