i sleep alone tonight

1990

i sleep alone tonight
the quiet puts up a deadly fight
the sun's on its way to who knows where
the night is cold and it chills the air

  how can anyone take it?
  bring back your light and let's make it
  but its a phantom in the moonlight
  i sleep alone tonight

i sleep alone tonight
its so quiet my ears feel tight
that was when your laugh disappeared
the distant train left from here

  how can anyone take it?
  bring back your light and let's make it
  but its a phantom in the moonlight
  i sleep alone tonight
