Old Churchyard, cold orange streetlight
one of these days, I'm gonna live right
rise in the morning, work till sunset
never do nothing I'd ever regret
be the kind of man who never backs down from a fight
old churchyard in the cold orange streetlight, oh no.
Once I had a woman I'll never forget
mouth like wine, eyes like sunset.
She was my treasure, and Lord, I was a gambler.
Could've had her hand but I wouldn't understand her
I could walk to heaven before the night's ended
But'll be a thousand years until my heart's mended.
Wander over mountains to steal the sun's fire,
but it won't burn through half my desire.
My heart's sing, "you're never gonna get it right."
in the old churchyard by the glow of a streetlight.
