I can see it in the air
Every word was like a smoke from a cigarette
You were blowin' in your hands
The heater broke in the Oldsmobile

And the light in your eyes
Alone on the freeway

I was stranded in the bed
You were listening to The Dark Side of the Moon
I could barely see your eyes
Psilocybin in a hotel room

And the light in your eyes
The waves on the ceiling

I'll be your brightside, baby, tonight
I'll be your brightside, baby, tonight
Tonight

You were tired of Tacoma
I was tired of believing we were right
Losing every other friend
Finding nothing in the afterlife

But the light in your eyes
Alone on a feeling

I'll be your brightside, baby, tonight
I'll be your brightside, baby, tonight
Tonight

You're stranded on the bridge
You're crying for your kids
I'll be your brightside, baby, tonight
Tonight
Tonight

I could see it in the air
Every word was like a smoke from a cigarette
Sun is coming up ahead
Get your crack the windshield shine

And the light in your eyes
Alone on the freeway

I'll be your brightside, baby, tonight
I'll be your brightside, baby, tonight
Tonight

You're stranded it on the bridge
The cops are closing in
I'll be your brightside, baby, tonight
Tonight
Tonight

I guess that's a sign this song isn't doing it for people.
Assuming they write their own material, why is it in a key the singer can't handle?
Won some tix to see them at Red Rocks a few years ago....a romp stomping good time was had by all.
Good Tune!

the lyrics are quite amazing, simple and dark and evocative of a sad and hopeless existence

Then they could cover Mr. Brightside by the Killers, why not?
