There's a chill on this evening, nights right for greaving,
He walked past the dim lights, the pathways and street lights
When his love was strong and his muscles hard, His whiskey throat was barley marred,
In the hour of his greatest need, Lost and forsaken by the love, he could not hold
On the Border line, we'll make our stand, Then watch it fall away
And he stands in quiet solitude, The nights reflects upon his mood,
His pounding heart was warm and young, Now locked inside him with his anger and fear
As he moves on slowly, past the trees, Down the path way home through fallen leaves
His purple heart hidden, deep inside, The only reward, for a love he could not hold
[Chorus 2x]
