I'm a lonely man walking lonely streets
From such a strained existence
The tension in this world keeps me from sleep
There's a weight hanging over my shoulders

Have I got enough hope?
I know there's an answer somewhere in this night

I am banging on the gates
Hoping that someone's gonna hear me pray
Oh there's a dawn chorus breaking out all over the town
Will you say you want me,
Will you say you love me
And will I still love you
The goal that I want can't exist without fire
These are a grown man's tears
I lost all faith, I lost all hope
Something would keep me going.
But I saw it each time I looked in your eyes
I'm walking in a wild place
On the other side of the tracks babe

Why do I feel the doubt
You give me something I can't live without
A feeling that I can't suppress
Is this the start of the beginning or the point of no return?
There's an answer there

I am banging on the gates
Where all my doubts are now laid away away away away
I am banging on the gates
Where someone answered my prayers
Oh there's a dawn chorus breaking out all over the town
(That's too sad)
