I eat dinner
At the kitchen table
By the light
That switches on
I eat leftovers
With mashed potatoes
No more candlelight
No more romance
No more smalltalk
When the hunger's gone
I eat dinner

At the kitchen table
And I wash it down with pop
I eat leftovers with mashed potatoes
No more candlelight
No more romance
No more smalltalk
When the hunger stops
When the hunger stops

Never thought that I'd end up this way
I who loved the sparks
Never thought my hair'd be turning gray
It used to be so dark
So dark

No more candlelight
No more romance
No more smalltalk
When the hunger's gone
No more candle light
No more romance
No more smalltalk
When the hunger's gone
When the hunger's gone

Never thought that I'd end up like this
I who loved the night
Never thought I'd be without a kiss
No one to turn off the light
Turn off the light

I eat dinner
At the kitchen table
With my daughter
Who is thirteen
We eat leftovers
With mashed potatoes
No more candlelight
No more romance
No more smalltalk
When the plate is clean
No more candlelight
No more romance
No more smalltalk
When the hunger's gone
When the hunger's gone
