lyrics

It had happened before.
The darkening sky.
We cleared the floor.
Threw our windows wide.
The telephone polls
Splintered in the road.
We watched the wires spark in the water.
Fall like dominoes.

And the power went out.
And the power went out.

The wicks of our candles flickered and teased.
At the woodwork.
We were swaying,
Imitating the flames.
In the quiet, in the silence, the symphony,
We were dancing.
One two three, one two three, one two three, one two three.
One two three, one two three, one two three, one two three.

And the power went out.
And the power went out.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

And we did as good men should.
Yeah we did as good men should.
Yeah we did as good men should.
Yeah we did the best we could.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

One two three,
And the power went out.
One two three,
And the power went out,
