The first time ever she saw him,
He passed on worried and warning,
Lost in a riddle that Saturday night,
He was caught in the middle of a desperate fight
The trees that whisper in the evening,
Sing a song of sorrow and grieving,
All she saw was a silhouette of a gun,
He was shot six times by a man on the run
I stay, I pray
I stay, I pray
Four a.m. in the morning,
I watched your vision forming,
Stars roll slowly in a silvery night,
Will you come to terms with me this night,
I stay, I pray
I stay, I pray
Far away on the other side.
The night was heavy and the air was alive,
Carried away by a moonlight shadow.
Far away on the other side.
