And now the night and the liquor wear off
I see your sister more clear
Now that the sun has warmed the sky
Won't you sleep my lady
Go to sleep baby
No, I can't sleep now baby

It's true I loved her then, yes
And you deserve far better than this mess
It's true I loved her then forever
But now it's you that I love always loved never

Now the night and the liquor coming on
I hardly see your sister
Now that the stars own the sky
Won't you come back lady
No, I won't come back baby
For I love rivers lately

    Now the night and the liquor wear off,
    I see your sister more clear.
    Now that the sun has won the sky,
    Won’t you sleep my lady?
    Won’t you sleep baby?

    No, I can’t sleep now, baby.

    It’s true, I loved her then, yes.
    And you deserve far better than this mess.
    It’s true, I loved her then, forever.

    But now it’s you that I love always for now.

    Now the night and the liquor coming on,
    I hardly see your sister.
    Now that the stars own the sky
    Won’t you come back, baby?

    No I won’t come back, baby,
    For I love mariners(?) lately.


    This song makes me so sad. It's so beautiful and tragic, and I think the line "It's true I loved her then forever, but now it’s you that I love always for now," if correct, is a fantastic line that explains relationships perfectly.
