WIDE OPEN.


IF I WAKE IN THE NIGHT

BECAUSE IN MY DREAMS

I CAUGHT SIGHT OF

A REFLECTION OF ME.

WHAT IS IT I SEE?

A MIDDLE AGED MAN

WITH NO PENSION PLAN

NO CASH IN THE BAGS

DRESSED ALMOST IN RAGS.

I`M STAYING AWAKE

I DON`T HAVE TO RAKE

OVER COLD COAL FIRES

STUMBLE THROUGH DANK DAMP MIRES

I`LL STAY UP IN THE NIGHT

KEEP MY EYES OPEN TIGHT

THIS I`LL DO RIGHT

I CAN`T LET MYSELF DWELL

IN THAT DEAD LIVING HELL

I`M GETTING ME WELL

THAT`S WHAT I TELL

MYSELF.
