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
