"The Nightshift" as written by and Francine Vicki/lambert Golde....
Your working day now complete,
The world outside falls asleep, a cradle to the cold.
This situation tonight,
I’m here, you’re there, it’s not right,
To have and not to hold.

The nighshift lay before me,
The nightshift make me stay away.

Just know that I would love to be, with you,
But I can’t do right now you see.
There’s nowhere I would rather be, than with you.

An invitation to spend,
The evening out with my friends, I regretfully decline.
The chance to lay down beside my baby for the night,
I had to let slip by.

The nighshift lay before me,
The nightshift make me stay away.

Just know that I would love to be, with you,
But I can’t do right now you see.
There’s nowhere I would rather be, than with you.

I look around, I can’t come down,
When there’s so much to be done.
So understand, it’s who I am,
The nightshift is what I’ve become.

Just know that I would love to be, with you,
But I can’t do right now you see.
There’s nowhere I would rather be, than with you.

When you're down remember this,
Close your eyes, make a wish, ‘cause it’s my alibi.
When you're lost remember this,
Close your eyes and picture this, sleep tonight…
