The Heavy Horses – Thirty Year Night

All Music

The nighttime crept quickly and finished the last of the sun
And I close my eyes and try hard to forget what I’d done
As darkness sweeps down from above and consumes my soul
Like night its so empty and bitterly cold

I’m heavy with burdens that shatter my last chance at sleep
I hear them all crying, see my poor mother weep
Guard on my left, a gavel slams down on my right
And iron bars close on a thirty year night

Oh Lord take me home
Oh Lord take me home
Oh Lord take me home
Oh Lord take me home

I scribble a note, I say I’m sorry that it happened this way
Exhaling my last breath so free knowing not what to say
The light burns my eyes but I see peace so clear
My heart bids my soul a farewell, feet kicking the air

Oh Lord take me home
Oh Lord take me home
