A brand new light
To a brand new day
The woods look starved
For mischief
So I call you out
But you’ve locked yourself in
Maybe other men could wait hours
But you ain’t worth it
Don’t you ever wonder what night rolled past?
Don’t you ever run around lost to kill the time?
Don’t you ever wonder what night rolled past?
And I ain’t getting stuck if you don’t come leavin' out, oh, oh
These things you should know
Like I know
A cold, dead night
After a windswept day
The fire burns high
And I’m just listening
To the whippoorwill's cry
Oh how it carries so fine
I’ll bet it floats miles straight through your window
And don’t you ever wonder what night rolled past?
Don’t you ever run around lost to kill the time?
Don’t you ever wonder what night rolled past?
And I ain’t getting stuck if you don’t come leavin' out
A cold dead night
After a windswept day
To the whippoorwills cry
Oh how it carries so fine
