about

Think Firehose recorded by Steve Albini, and if that sounds like too much of a flight of the imagination then be prepared for even more adventures off the beaten track offered by The Rooftop Gambler. With stories that are magically wistful and intriguing, Turned Out The Light is like a heavenly slumber party under the influence of a full moon.

lyrics

Lost things I couldn’t keep safe
There’s a lot of weight on my shoulders
Pick the strings and missed the whole idea
Of what you wanted to hear

Turn out the light, Turn over to think
Saw the light of the street, it was the morning

Old town stories
Hold you for the night
An empty glass a broken tissue
Five claps and one CD sold

Turn out the light, Turn over to think
Saw the light of the street, it was the morning

Caught by the coattails, caught by the coat
Caught by the coattails
You broke my fall...You broke it all
