I should wake up this town — my heart’s on fire.
Main road and no one’s around as the flames climb higher.
I have been here before and I know the way,
but love seemed sweeter and sure in the light of day, in the light of day.
So as I rise, I will reach for the livin’ ..I’ll say no prayer
As tonight he brought me to heaven and left me here.
I could tell by his face — those two tired eyes — it’s been a long night searching for grace, and the sun won’t rise.
Now I have been here before, though I know I am lost.
‘Cause the same place that filled me with joy is a road I crossed, just a road I crossed.
… So as I rise, I will reach for the livin’… I’ll say no prayer.. cuz tonight love feels nothing like heaven, to leave me here.
