Lyrics

  • Oh, he owned these dark, dark eyes 
  • So much the cold desert night would brighten next to his face  
  • And in the sky there was silence for words to convey 
  • I'd fall asleep and he'd pray, "God keep me here to stay." 
  • I cried and cried when they machine-gunned him away  
  • Stood by my window for days. He never came back again  
  • I cried and cried all day when they machine-gunned him away  
  • Stood by my window for days, but he never came back again
