Manhattan TransferIt's Not The Spotlight

If I ever feel the light again Shinin' down on me I don't have to tell you How welcome it will be I felt the light before But I let it slip away I still keep on believin' It'll come back someday It's not the spotlight It ain't the candlelight And it ain't the streetlight Of some old street of dreams It ain't the moonlight Not even the sunlight But I've seen it shinin' in your eyes And you know what I mean Sometimes I try to tell myself "You know the light was never real" - A fantasy that used to be the way I used to feel But you and I know better now Even though it's been so long If your memory really serves you well You'd never tell me I'm wrong It's not the spotlight It ain't the candlelight And it ain't the streetlight Of some old street of dreams (no - no) It ain't the moonlight Not even the sunlight But I've seen it shinin' in your eyes And you know what I mean If I ever feel the light again You know things will have to change Names and faces, homes and places Will have to be re-arranged And you can help me come about If you're ever so inclined Ain't no rhyme or reason A woman can't change her mind It's not the spotlight It ain't the candlelight And it ain't the streetlight Of some old street of dreams (no - no) It ain't the moonlight Not even the sunlight But I've seen it shinin' in your eyes And you know what I mean (Repeat)
