THE HUMAN LEAGUE - LYRICS

 

STARS ARE GOING OUT, THE

(Oakey/Sutton)

Naked under bedclothes

Fallen to the floor

Hot anticipation

Causes slumber to withdraw

Are you going out tonight?

Will the evening be alright or more?
The stars are going out

The stars are going out

We used to be so hot

A million kilowatt or more
Sifting through the wreckage

At a hundred miles an hour
Searching for a night club

A source of worship power
Grabbing worn out cast off lovers

Throwing out a trail of need or more

I never called you baby

Made the necessary motion

Swallowed pride for peace of mind

While swimming in your ocean

I always had to fit

Or be aware of it or more
The stars are going out

The stars are going out

We used to be so tough

But just not tough enough that's all
The stars are going out

The stars are going out

We used to be so bad

But that was just a fad that's all
The stars are going out

The stars are going out
The stars are going out

The stars are going out

We used to be so bright

But now we shake with fright that's all
The stars are going out

The stars are going out

We used to be so bad

But that was just a fad that's all
The stars are going out

The stars are going out

We used to be so tough

But just not tough enough that's all
