When The Lights Go Down In Mexico

from by Gung



When the lights go down in Mexico the stars come out at night.
Where the people stare into the sun and wonder what went right.
Then the time will come for everyone to wander in the day.
And the lights go down in Mexico and I can find my way.

The red and yellow hue of horizons yet to come will fade into the distances and blue will turn to dust, a brighter shade of life will rise out of our differences.

We're only here for the rest of our lives so why do we spend it on opposite sides? We should be spending our time in the light instead of the darkness that keeps us inside.

So let me go out the way I came in.
