The Lilac Time - A Day In The Night lyrics

Life is cheap
Keep the receipt
And I can claim it back, pal
You're so sweet
I won't cheat
Or have you heard that one, gal?

What have I done wrong?
I'm only looking for a day in the night

Times are hard
They always are
It's just our way of life, mate
And when I'm down
I go to town
Until it's too late

What have I done to my soul?
Looking for a day in the night

It's 4am, I'm restless
And the night is just beginning to get old
Every story has been told
Now will you join me?
So we can sing together down a sleepy street
It's why we had to meet
We were looking for a day in the night
