When the Lights Go Out

When the lights go out 
People say the world is a lonely place 
Full of broken hope 
And shattered dreams 
There's no chance for us it seems 

But when the lights go out 
The last candle's glow flickers and dies 
Like the spirit of a thousand people 
There's a second chance in the darkness 
As the stars flicker and fall 
From the sky 

When the darkest night is ny 
And the people pray 
Let us make it out 
With our sanity and light 
When the lights go out 

Every dreams seems to be 
A little closer to reality 
And it seems to me 
The only hope of living for another day 
Is let the lights go out 

When the lights go out 
Go out 
Go out 
When the lights go out 
Every dream seems to be 
A little closer to reality 
Every wistful fantasy 
Is only as far away as it seems 

When the lights go out (go out)
When the lights go out (go out) 
But people is a lonely place 
Full of broken hopes 
And shattered dreams 
But when the lights go out (go out 
When the lights go out (go out) 

Every wistful fantasy 
Is only as far away as it seems 
When the lights go out 
The last candle's glow flickers and dies 
And the stars flicker and fall 
From the sky

    I really like this! "Like the spirit of a thousand people" was particularly powerful and I love the word "wistful" it's just so beautiful and you used it really well! The brackets with extra "go out" really helped me imagine someone singing it!

    this is an incredible poem! it's truly beautiful, i felt like i had been enveloped in a different world when i read it. if you don't mind, could you check out my poem 'moonchild'? i worked really hard on it.

    your poem is magnificent. the way you convey emotions that every reader can relate to is very impressive. keep up the fantastic work!!
