When I lost you honey sometimes I think I lost my guts too
And I wish God would send me a word
Send me something I'm afraid to lose
Lying in the heat of the night like prisoners all our lives
I get shivers down my spine and all I want to do is hold you tight

[Chorus]
I swear I'll drive all night just to buy you some shoes
And to taste your tender charms
And I just want to sleep tonight again in your arms

Tonight there's fallen angels and they're waiting for us down in the street
Tonight there's calling strangers,
Hear them crying in defeat.
Let them go, let them go, let them go,
Do their dances of the dead (let'em go right ahead)
You just dry your eyes girl, and c'mon c'mon
C'mon let's go to bed, baby, baby, baby

[Chorus]

There's machines and there's fire waiting on the edge of town
They're out there for hire but baby they can't hurt us now
'Cause you've got, you've got, you've got,
You've got my love, you've got my love
Through the wind, through the rain, the snow, the wind, the rain
You've got, you've got my, my love
Heart and soul

    General CommentThis song seems to be based on earlier Van Morrison works like "madame george" and "And the Healing Has Begun". Same chords, but still unmistakably bruce and the lyrics are great.
