Lyrics

The Last One To Leave Wall Street

Written By: Duane Michael Tucker

Once upon a time there was a banker
thought he could get away with anything
So he took all of our money
and he flushed it down the drain

(Chorus 1)
Will the last one to leave Wall Street
As we watch the gathering night
Will the last one to leave Wall Street
Won't you please turn out the light

Once I had a house up on a mountain
looking down on my fields of gold
But all that seems so long ago now
here at this line out in the cold

(Chorus 2)
Will the last one to leave Wall Street
As our children shiver with fright
Will the last one to leave Wall Street
Won't you please turn out the light

(Chorus 3)
Will the last one to leave Wall Street
As our dreams fade farther from sight
Will the last one to leave Wall Street
Won't you please turn out the light

Turn out the light, turn out the light, turn out the light now baby
Turn out the light, turn out the light, turn out the light...
(Repeat to end)

You Are My Match

Written By: Duane Michael Tucker

I see a face in a dim street lamp
Silent, beholding, warm and damp
Eyes which say, Gaze onto me
And I will bring my love to thee

You are my match, you are the image there
Whenever I need a place to rest my cares
You are my match, you are my sunlight
In the black of night

I see a time when the sea is still
When I've found a lover for my soul to fill
A kiss so sweet, a touch so fine
With words and music to make it shine

You are my match, you are the one for me
My favorite joy, my favoritememory
You are my inside and my outside
My sorrow and my pride

You are my match, you are the image there
Whenever I need a place to rest my cares
You are my match, you are my sunlight
In the black of night

Waiting Out The Rain

Written By: Duane Michael Tucker

Waiting out the rain
I've reached the bottom of the curve again
I said goodbye and drove away
In so much pain
Hoping that I'd done enough
To cause it to remain
Waiting out the rain

Just because it never worked before
Is no reason to be doubting here and now
Oh, it's just got to last
If we can both make it through somehow

She helped me with my blues
And filled these stormy days with happy news
She gave me guides and truths of life
That I can use
And though our time has come unstuck
There will come a time when it reglues
A time when it reglues

Just because all the others melted like
Sandcastles in the rain
There's a hope inside me that I can't explain
Waiting out the rain
