"LITTLE BIT O' LIGHT" is a song about those restless, sleepless, hundred-year-long nights when your mind won't stop turning and your worries won't stop worrying you. And what you might try doing about that as you hang on. It was originally titled "Such a Night," until several people pointed me to a Dr. John tune of that title.

LITTLE BIT O' LIGHT
words & music by Douglas Imbrogno (copyright 2004)
---


The avenue is wet and cold and dark...
Rain pours down like it's time for Noah's Ark.
The news is bad, but it always seems to be.
It's even worse when you take it personally.
Midnight's past, it's a hundred years to go,
before the sun returns with the power of its glow.

CHORUS:

Ain't nothin' there but a little bit o' light.
It's enough to carry you, through a long and lonesome night.
We all can recall ... such a night.

The sky is grey, the color of a stone.
Wind blows hard, it sounds just like a moan.
You need some sleep, but that party in your head
Goes on and on and on and on... while you toss and turn in bed.
So strike a match, a candle lights the room...
Sit there quietly in the center of the room.

CHORUS:

Ain't nothin' there but a little bit o' light.
It's enough to carry you, through a long and lonesome night.
We all can recall ... such a night.
