“There Is A Light That Never Goes Out” Uncovered & Covered

there-is-a-light

I had a similar post earlier, in which I shared a few versions of “Big Mouth Strikes Again” by The Smiths from The Queen Is Dead.  Well that was great and all but there are far more available versions of another jam from that same album, “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out,” so let’s have at it.

A couple notes… 1) this song is beautiful 2) when the Neil Finn & Friends Seven Worlds Collide – Live at the St. James CD/DVD was released, I was a junior at university and listened/watched it incessantly

“There Is A Light That Never Goes Out” lyrics:

Take me out tonight
Where theres music and theres people
And they’re young and alive
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven’t got one
Anymore

Take me out tonight
Because I want to see people and i
Want to see life
Driving in your car
Oh, please don’t drop me home
Because its not my home, its their
Home, and I’m welcome no more

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure – the privilege is mine

Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere, I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care
And in the darkened underpass
I thought oh god, my chance has come at last
(but then a strange fear gripped me and i
Just couldn’t ask)

Take me out tonight
Oh, take me anywhere, I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven’t got one, da …
Oh, I haven’t got one

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure – the privilege is mine

Oh, there is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
