"An Evening Hymn" as written by and H Balfour Gardiner....
Winnipeg, I'm sorry
For wearin' your heart on my sleeve.
In the mornin' I'll be goin'—
These arms won't tire from rowin'.
The drums won't let me sleep.

I sneak out in the mornin',
And I watch you while you sleep.
You just lie there like a stranger
With the secrets that you keep.

When you're caught up in the rain,
And it's comin' down in sheets,
It really keeps a boy awake.
Yeah, it keeps a boy awake.

All my clouds have a silver linin'
From which I'll melt the metal down
For paddles for my heart to keep it beatin',
And if they keep repeatin',
The two of us could dance all through the night

And get caught up in the rain
When it's comin' down in sheets.
It really keeps a boy awake.
Yeah, it keeps a boy awake.

What's the point in livin'
If you can't get what you want?
I'm too tired for conversations.
Come home, dear—I feel lost

And caught up in the rain,
And it's comin' down in sheets.
It really keeps a boy awake.
Yeah, it keeps a boy awake.
