The Lyrics

One more try at this song. This one just came to me. We really don't have anywhere near enough streetlights here, only on US1 and even those aren't great.
I've got no street lights, it's just so dark outside my place
No lights, nothing shining in your face
Need lights, the city couldn't be bothered
Want lights, so now it's dark for all drivers

it's dark outside that stinks
Outside the skating rinks
I'm drivin' in the dark
They need some new landmarks
You can't see where you go
You missed the turn, oh no
Few street lights on the main road
That's far from my abode

Where's lights, you know it's so frustrating
And tough, when in the night you're driving
Often, it's tough to tell where you are
Even, the position of your car

You could be near the fields
By a sign that says Yield
Hope you have both headlights
And that they're aligned right
If walking down the way
Be careful, because hey
The drivers can't see you
And that might make you blue

Street lights
Need lights
Want lights
No Street lights

I've got no street lights, but still drive out anyway
But I, wonder if it's night or day
You know, it's so tough so drive with care
Street lights, and let's be careful out there

And if you skate or walk
Just stay on the sidewalk
And if you are biking
Be careful, like hiking
Why aren't there more street lights
We need them in the night
And most cities have them
But we don't here my friend

Buy lights, you could turn them on and off
Build lights, at the notion you must scoff
Get lights, and there's a thousand reasons why
Have lights, put them up across the sky

You need them here so much
To drive careful and such
Yes you can afford them
So why don't we see them
I'll call up to complain
Say my name is Ryan Dain
I should call the mayor
Oh yeah now that's for sure

Street lights
Yeah lights
Some lights
Need Street lights
Want Street lights
No Street lights
Street lights
Whoa, Street lights
