lyrics

The mourning doves court a plaintive sunrise
And sorrow is wearing me thin
I may be shut down and walked on, but I'm too scared to die
And so it's time to be wondering

I'm tired of depression
I can't carry that load

'Cause I just don't know how strong I can be
Growing old, down-and-out, and lonely
And I don't want to ever see the sad light of heaven
Shine down on me

In dreams like a river the snake was a sign
To beware of believing in skin
But I told him "I surely can trade yours for mine"
And God knows he smiled at me then

If I have to make my confession
I'll whisper once from the road

'Cause I just don't know how strong I can be
Growing old, down-and-out, and lonely
And I don't want to ever see the sad light of heaven
Shine down on me

I'm a follower of fears no more
It's high time to grow

And I just don't know how strong I can be
Growing old, down-and-out, and lonely
And I don't want to ever see the sad light of heaven
Shine down on me

I don't want to ever see the sad light of heaven
Shine down on me

I don't want to ever see the sad light of heaven
Shine down on me
