DRESS II

WALK THE NIGHT

It’s gone past my bedtime

I hear tyres scream through the night

I lost my soul

So close but so far from home

 

The streets are familiar

The trees call out my name

I hear the kids cry

In their beds at home

 

When you’re through

You don’t feel anything

All I can do

Is walk the night

 

They search both day and night

Still no one can find me

I walk alone

So close but so far from home

 

When you’re through

You don’t feel anything

I long for you

And walk the night

 

My days are through

And I want you more than anything

All I can do

Is walk the night

 

I can sense you look at me

I can hear you in the breeze

But I am numb

And my time is numbered

Your car came back for me

In a dark suburban street

In February

A warm wind blew in from the north

 

When you’re through

You don’t feel anything

I long for you

And walk the night

 

My days are through

And I want you more than anything

All I can do

Is walk the night

 

One one, two two,

I long for you

Three three, four four,

I want you more

Five five, six six,

My little kids

Seven seven, eight eight,

Please don’t wait

Nine nine, ten ten

We’ll meet again

 

Step, step, step, into the night.
