SHOT IN THE DARK
John Soeder
© 2015

If you want to sparkle
All you need is a spark
Can’t fly like an eagle
When you’re swimming with the sharks
And you can’t take a shot in the dark
If you leave the light on

Oh Mandalay
There’s gold in them there hills
Or so they say

It’s like I told you before
If you want to find what you’re looking for
Just close your eyes when you walk out the door
See what you set your sights on

If you want to sparkle
All you need is a spark
Can’t fly like an eagle
When you’re swimming with the sharks
And you can’t take a shot in the dark
If you leave the light on

Oh rain delay
I left my umbrella
In San Francisco
Hey hey hey

Oh Mandalay
There’s gold in them there hills
Or so they say

Csikszentmihalyi said go with the flow
But how you gonna go
When you just don’t know
Where the flow is going
Ain’t no way of knowing
What you set your sights on

All it takes is a spark
Can’t fly like an eagle
When you’re swimming with the sharks
And you can’t take a shot in the dark
If you leave the light on

So turn out the light
Turn out the light
Turn out the light
Turn out the light
Turn out the light

Turn out the light
Turn out the light
Turn out the light
Turn out the light
Turn out the light

It’s like I told you before
If you want to find what you’re looking for
Just close your eyes when you walk out the door
See what you set your sights on

If you want to sparkle
All you need is a spark
Can’t fly like an eagle
When you’re swimming with the sharks
And you can’t take a shot in the dark
If you leave the light on
