Jackson BrowneEnough Of The Night

You used to stand on the tables You used to shoot out the lights You used to stop trucks on i-19 In your blue leopard tights You got the vote of your high school Most likely to exceed But not likely to ever get enough Enough of what you need Enough of the night Enough of the night And now the carnival lights come down The sounds of laughter receed You sit and drink in this cardboard town The fast lane gone to seed You used to laugh about the damage done But there was no way to know How little distance you had actually come And how far you'd have to go It's tough to do baby It's tough to make it When the heart is naked It's tough for you baby It's tough for me too Without all this pain to see through Now I want to see you smile You know how It's just been awhile Don't allow Another night to close on your empty cup You've had enough of those Enough of the night Enough of the night You used to count on the miracles The old shot in the dark You used to wait for the setting sun To help you hit your mark You used to stand on the tables You used to shoot out the lights You dressed right out of the fables Like the arabian nights But you were never the princess More like the queen of the thieves And my heart was never more than one of the many A queen receives It's tough to do baby It's tough to make it When the heart is naked It's tough for you baby it's tough for me too Without this disdain to see through Now I want to see you smile You know how It's just been awhile Don't allow Another heart to pass beyond your reach Say "baby not so fast" You've had enough of the night To fill the street with tears You've had enough of those empty hours To last a thousand years Enough of the night Enough of the tears
