it's time you put those heavy things to bed
it's best now
you better rest your pretty head
and the sparrow caught you staring out the windowpane
and you're outside in the fog again

and your mother's been talking in her sleep
and she said "babe, you know I'm lonely"
she said that the world's been falling out and out and out and out enough
when it's so..

and the only friend you had was your man
but it's thrown away and they took all your plans
now the old dectective's all you see
and it burns the smoke like a chimney
and he's wasting every penny that you have

you fell through the tracks in the rain
and the footsteps it goes to a board in the drain
hold me now it's okay it's okay
hold me
then spit you out

old wounds they may be opening up
the ones that you thought had been skinned shut
and darkness is creeping out of all the holes in the walls
and it's all splintering fast

and you fell through the tracks in the rain
and the footsteps it goes to a board in the drain
hold me now it's okay it's okay
I won't let them get you now

it's alright
a light was shining on
I say goodbye to my old life
and I start again in the night

baby you're outside
baby you're outside
you're outside
would you come inside to me?
don't go
don't go to sleep at all

baby you're outside
baby you're outside
baby you're outside
it's cold
won't you come inside tonight?

baby you're outside
baby you're outside
baby you're outside
but it's cold
would you come inside to me?
don't go
don't go to sleep at all
