Lyrics:

To school, teach class
Cook lunch and then the kids come home
Weekend, do things
Have dreams, but heís far away
Short road, long trip
Ďfraid of the border patrol
Old house, old folks
Did they know what love is for?

The night is colder
When tenderness is far
I pray to you to be with me
No matter where you are
The night, so much darker
When love canít shake the bone
As long as you canít hold me tight
I will feel all alone

Lost souls, lost lives
There is so much pain to learn
Read books, do chores
No rest and no tired time
Huge heart, such love
Yet why so much suffering
Alone and scared
Why that to the sweetest soul?

And the night is colder
When tenderness is far
I pray to you to be with me
No matter where you are
The night, so much darker
When love canít shake the bone
As long as you canít hold me tight
I will feel all alone
