lyrics

CHECK OUT THE VIDEO ON YOU TUBE!

I'm bruised and battered from a hard-work day

Drove back from so far away
The room is dark and I find you sleeping
I lift the sheets and in I slide
In the warmth by your side
Lay there listening to you breathing

You’re my sweet girl
Ooh, my complete girl
In the way you try to understand
This tried and troubled man

The world outside is cruel and cold
As each day unfolds
With all its greed and all its scheming
But that world disappears
Now I feel your body near
And you drift out of your dreaming

The nearness of a beating heart
A sigh in the dark 
Hair tumbles down like rain
I feel all my pain slip away

Don’t let dawn’s grey light
Come steal away the night
There’ll be time enough for leaving
With you near to me
It all comes clear to me
My heart is in safe-keeping
