    Lyrics:
    The sun came into view As I sat with the tears in my eyes The sun came up on you And as you smiled, the teardrop, it dried I don't know where I had been But I know what I have seen Made me chill right to the bone Made me wish that I'd stayed home along with you Tired of midnight blues The sun came up so high And as it shone, I realized your love The sun shone in your eyes And as you smiled, you realized it too Don't know where I had been But I know what I have seen Made me chill right to the bone Made me wish that I'd stayed home with you Tired of midnight blues Don't know where I had been But I know what I have seen Made me chill right to the bone Made me wish that I'd stayed home with you Tired of midnight blues The sun went down the sky Way up the clouds told me that they knew The moon came up so high And as you smiled, I knew that you knew too Don't know where I had been But I know what I have seen Made me chill right to the bone Made me wish that I'd stayed home with you Tired of midnight blues I don't know where I had been But I know what I have seen Made me chill right to the bone Made me wish that I'd stayed home with you [*]

    Lyrics:
    And I thought to close my mouth With a padlock on the night Leave the battlefield behind Stay out the fight Not lose my sight Now I only want to be With no pistol at my brain But at times it gets so lonely Could go insane Could lose my aim Now I only want to live With no teardrops in my eyes But at times it feels like no chance No clear blue skies Grey cloudy lies No clear blue skies Grey cloudy lies [*]
