Streetlights
by Bonnie Raitt



I heard a voice come through on my telephone line
Told me that it was your time
I thought that they were fooling
They were fooling me
And then I remember having this dream of mine
When it came down on me

I was told by a friend of mine
That it don’t matter if your dreams, they bother you
Your dreams won’t happen unless you only want them to
So I asked him for a ride
He said, “Hop on board, girl
I been waitin’ here for you”
I thought I had nothin’ left to lose

Where’d you say you’d be tonight
Streetlights are all I see

All I wanted on that ride
Was just a little kindness, a little kindness shown my way
I found myself runnin’ out of ideas on how to say
It just got to be somethin’ more than I could take
But that summer somehow we were havin’ fun
Your magic took me by surprise

Where’d you say you’d be tonight
Streetlights are all I see
And now I know the feelin’s right
Yes I know the feelin’s right
‘Cause just last night you came into my dreams

Yes you did, yes you did

I heard a voice come through on my telephone line
Told me that it was your time
I thought that they were fooling
They were fooling me
And then I remember having this dream of mine
When it came down on me
I said it came down on me—Oh

Where’d you say you’d be tonight
Streetlights are all I see

And now I know the feelin’s right
‘Cause just last night you came into my dreams

I heard a voice come through on my telephone line
Told me that it was your time
