It's Not The Spotlight

(Gerry Goffin / Barry Goldberg)

Chords

Follow D Em A G D - G D - G A G A D pattern throughout


If I ever feel the light again
Shining down on me
I don't have to tell you
How welcome it would be
I felt the light before
But I let it slip away
And I just keep on believing
That it'll come back someday

It's not the spotlight
It's not the candlelight
Its not the streetlights
Of some old street of dreams
It ain't the moonlight
Not even the sunlight
But I've seen it shining in your eyes
And you know what I mean

Sometimes I try to tell myself
The light was never real
Just a fantasy that used to be
The way I used to feel
But you and I know better
Even though it's been so long
Now if your memory really serves you well
You'll never tell me no wrong

It's not the spotlight
It's not the candlelight
Its not the streetlights
Of some old street of dreams
It ain't the moonlight
Not even the sunlight
But I've seen it shining in your eyes
And you know what I mean

So if I ever feel the light again
Shining down on me
I won't have tell you
How welcome it would be
I felt the light before
But I let it slip away
And I just live for believing
That it'll come back someday

It's not the spotlight
It's not the candlelight
Its not the streetlights
Of some old street of dreams
It ain't the moonlight
Not even the sunlight
But I've seen it shining in your eyes
And you know what I mean
Yeah I've seen it shining in your eyes
And you know what I mean

If I ever feel the light again
Shining down on me
I wont have to tell you
How welcome it would be
I felt the light before
But I let it slip away
Now I just keep on believing
That it'll come back someday

It ain't the spotlight
It ain't the candlelight
It ain't the streetlights
Of some old street of dreams
It ain't the moonlight
Not even the sunlight
But I've seen it shining in your eyes
And you know what I mean

Sometimes I try to tell myself
The light just isn't real
It's just a fantasy that used to be
The way I used to feel
But you and I know better

Now if your memory really serves you well
You'll never tell me no wrong

It ain't the spotlight
It ain't the candlelight
It ain't the streetlights
Of some old street of dreams
It ain't the moonlight

So if I ever feel the light again
Shining down on me
I won't have tell you
How welcome it would be
