It's Not The Spotlight

It's Not The Spotlight

Rod Stewart

If I ever feel the light again shinin' down on me
I don't have to tell you what a welcome it will be
I felt the light before, but I let it slip away
But I still keep on believin' that it'll come back some day

It's not the spotlight, it's not the cam'ra light
It's not the street lights of some old street of dreams
It ain't the moonlight, not even the sunlight
But I've seen it shinin' in your eyes, an' you know what I mean

Some times, 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
If your memory really serves you well, you'll never tell me, no wrong

It's not the spotlight, it's not the cam'ra light
It's not the streetlights of some old street of dreams
It ain't the moonlight, not even the sunlight
But I've seen it shinin' in your eyes, an' you know what I mean

So if I ever feel the light again shinin' 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
But I still keep on believin' that it'll come back some day

It's not the spotlight, it's not the cam'ra light
It's not the streetlights, of some old street of dreams
It ain't the moonlight, not even the sunlight
But I've seen it shinin' in your eyes, an' you know what I mean

It's not the spotlight, it's ain't the cam'ra light
It's not the streetlights, of some old street of dreams
No, it ain't the moonlight, never the sunlight
But I've seen it shinin' in your eyes, an' you know what I mean
