I told her
Things could not be better
Every days red letter for me
I told her
My burdons are much lighter
And all the lights are brighter for me

Chorus:
Makes her so happy so
I'll lie again
Makes her so happy so
I'll lie again

I told her Don't worry any longer
'Cos faith is getting stronger in me
I told her
All the things I'm learning
How the tide is turning for me

Chorus

Meanwhile I'm feeling like a ghost
On the edge of night
Restless for a home I can glimpse
In the fading light
Craving for something I can never
Quite get right

Bridge:
Feeling only inches away
Meanwhile I pass through the crowd
On the boulevard
Turn a deaf ear to every laugh
That is coming hard,
Add another pile to the trash
In the junkyard
While keeping all the waking dogs at bay

I told her
Things could not be better
Every days red letter for me

Chorus
