Under The Amber Street Light

from by Electrik Emily



This song was based off of a dream I had. The dream was about a pair of soul mates who meet one night, and through misfortune are separated by death. They get to meet on the anniversary of that night under the "Amber Street Light." Yet, the song is left open ended as to which soul mate died and which was left waiting. The song has kind of a rocked up folk ballad feel.


You saw me last
Under the amber street light
Then I vanished from your sight

I finally found you
With this night to spare
To tell you that our souls are a pair

You say “we just met”
But you know as well as I
We belong together, this you cannot deny

Now forgive me my love
But I have to go
How it pains me, you’ll never know

I feel you
And I know you
And everything that has gone by
All the passion
All the pain
I keep it all in my mind

You see I made a deal
To stop death’s rite
It would take me and save your life

For at the break of dawn
You would have died
So I do what I must to turn the tide

Now I stand at the crossroad
Prepared for my fate
You appear saying “It’s not too late!”

You looked at death
Said “You cannot have my heart!”
“This will never keep us apart!”


But the deal was my time
You said “It will also be yours”
So we will both perish
Rather than endure

And the sickle said “No”
“One must die here tonight
But after dusk may return
Under the amber street light”


So they are one
Under the amber street light
Now and forever this night
