if i lie awake she can sing me to sleep
and when she not around there aint no need to dream
the two of us live a life out on the run
sometimes i think shed be better off with the younger sons

she don't care at all if i come home late
and she never seems to mind if i don't know what to say
she knows i can't forget how the callus of my fingers fall across her neck
and how i hold her close and sing all the things i should have said

she asks why oh why do you write these songs
is it an attempt to right the wrong
if you've only one life to live and only go so much shit to give
why not give till its gone instead keeping at home for all your kids
