words and music by Jared Lekites (BMI)

For Pat DiNizio and Tom Petty

REVIEWS:

"With George Harrison-y slide guitar in tow, Jared Lekites’ latest, slated for inclusion on the Lunar Laugh’s next album, is a catchy slice of happy-sounding melodic pop about a sore subject–a fractured relationship that might, could possibly be saved (“When I woke up you were crying/Bitter tears that made me feel like dying/Is it too late to kiss and make up/We’ve been together too long to break up”). An attractive chorus shines. Don’t miss it." - Pure Pop Radio

"A great catchy chorus with a sweet slide guitar riff! Pure bliss." - Powerpopaholic

"'By The Light of The Living Room' describes the confusion, hurt feelings and 'bitter tears' inherent in the imminent dissolution of a long-term relationship, but the sugarcoated vocal harmonies and powerpop instrumentation belie the sadness of the situation described in Jared Lekites' lyrics, as though the immaculate production and meticulously assembled song structure might compensate for the messiness in the narrator's love life. It's all too pretty to be depressing." - Oklahoma Gazette

Track Name: By The Light of The Living Room [Single Mix]
Coming up on another sound
I felt too young for this old town
Jaded love wears a thorny crown
Don't it make your blue eyes brown

CHORUS:
There by the light of the living room
I watched it all go down
Somebody always speaks too soon
Whenever you come 'round
I've been waiting for someone to show me the way
There by the light of the living room
I felt you slipping away

I was warmed by your gentle touch
Tell me, did I surrender too much
I kept my promise through day and night
I used to know what was wrong or right

CHORUS:
There by the light of the living room
I watched it all go down
Somebody always speaks too soon
Whenever you come 'round
I've been waiting for someone to show me the way
There by the light of the living room
You had to ruin my day

When I woke up you were crying
bitter tears that made me feel like dying
Is it too late to kiss and make up
We've been together too long to break up

CHORUS:
There by the light of the living room
I watched it all go down
Somebody always speaks too soon
Whenever you come 'round
I've been waiting for someone to show me the way
There by the light of the living room
I felt you slipping away

There by the light of the living room
I watched it all go down
Somebody always speaks too soon
Whenever you come 'round
I've been waiting
I'll be waiting until the end of time
Here by the light of the living room
I'm going out of my mind

(There by the light of the living room)
'Said I'm going out of my mind
(There by the light of the living room)
I'm going out of my mind
(There by the light of the living room)
I'm going out of my mind
(There by the light of the living room)
