about

The tag line of the chorus, "Sometimes the end of the night can be cruel, like a sunrise," came from a few too many experiences, and the odd chemical reaction one's body seems to have against the faint brightening of the sky.

Shout out to our fantastic drunken party crowd Janine Pot, Trevor Bell, Chris Cronin, Landon Kotchapaw, Sebastian Button & Alicia Elliott:)

lyrics

At the End of the Night - Red Falcon / White Lightning

It's been a week for forgettin'/ It seemed ever endin'/
When anything that could've gone wrong went and happened twice/
I almost prayed for forgiveness/ With God as my witness/
But then at the end of the tunnel I saw the hint of a light/

And now it's Friday afternoon and all my strength has returned/
I make my way to the bar, because there's one thing I've learned/
It's that the problems of the week can disappear for the short term/

But at the end of the night it's like the end of a dream/
And all the hope and the promise up and fades away/
When they turn on the lights/
Sometimes the end of the night can be cruel like a sunrise

I made it into work Monday by extending my Sunday/
'Cause who really needs any sleep when you're having a good time?/
Then Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday were a succession of blurs made/
All the more perfectly poetic by the fact I got fired/

But now it's Friday afternoon and all my strength has returned/
I make my way to the bar, because there's one thing I've learned/
It's that the problems of the week can disappear for the short term/

CHORUS

Oh, baby, baby, baby/ Won't you give me some of your sweet time/
I've been down on my luck so long, I could sure use a smile/
Oh baby, baby, baby/ Please don't say that you gotta go/
Can we go and get a coffee……After the show?

But at the end of the night it's like the end of a dream/
And all the hope and the promise up and fades away/
When you open your eyes/
Sometimes the end of the night can be cruel like a sunrise(x2)
Sometimes the end of the night can be cruel/
Sometimes the end of the night can be so damn cruel/
Sometimes the end of the night can be cruel like a sunrise
