When the night comes falling from the sky | by MizzieMorawez
Back to group

When the night comes falling from the sky

Look out across the fields, see me returning

Smoke is in your eye, you draw a smile

From the fireplace where my letters to you are burning

You’ve had time to think about it for a while

 

Well, I’ve walked two hundred miles, now look me over

It’s the end of the chase and the moon is high

It won’t matter who loves who

You’ll love me or I’ll love you

When the night comes falling from the sky

 

I can see through your walls and I know you’re hurting

Sorrow covers you up like a cape

Only yesterday I know that you’ve been flirting

With disaster that you managed to escape

 

I can’t provide for you no easy answers

Who are you that I should have to lie?

You’ll know all about it, love

It’ll fit you like a glove

When the night comes falling from the sky

 

I can hear your trembling heart beat like a river

You must have been protecting someone last time I called.

I’ve never asked you for nothing you couldn’t deliver

I’ve never asked you to set yourself up for a fall

 

I saw thousands who could have overcome the darkness

For the love of a lousy buck, I’ve watched them die

Stick around, baby, we’re not through

Don’t look for me, I’ll see you

When the night comes falling from the sky

 

In your teardrops, I can see my own reflection

It was on the northern border of Texas where I crossed the line

I don’t want to be a fool starving for affection

I don’t want to drown in someone else’s wine

 

For all eternity I think I will remember

That icy wind that’s howling in your eye

You will seek me and you’ll find me

In the wasteland of your mind

When the night comes falling from the sky

 

Well, I sent you my feelings in a letter

But you were gambling for support

This time tomorrow I’ll know you better

When my memory is not so short

 

This time I’m asking for freedom

Freedom from a world which you deny

And you’ll give it to me now

I’ll take it anyhow

When the night comes falling from the sky
