Lyrics

Silver has a gun
on the nightstand by her bed
and she wonders if the day will come
when she puts it to her head
And she is alone again
in the shadow of the morning sun
and she wonders if he really had to go
or did he just turn tail and run
He promised that he would come
but she don't wait by the phone
because they never call and they never come
and she just ends up alone
And as the end of the night comes
when that curtain starts to fall
she says you can be the one for me
when you take it take it all
Just say heigh ho Silver
when you ride when you ride
when you take me take it all from me
just stay with me tonight
don't leave me alone tonight
She looks at all the other people
sees how they love the way they do
and she wonders how they often seem
to live as happy as they do
Am I the only one alone here
is there someone here for me
or am I just that silver shade of grey
that nobody wants to see
Just say heigh ho Silver
when you ride when you ride
when you take me take it all from me
but just stay with me tonight
just say heigh ho Silver
when you ride when you ride
when you take me take it all from me
but just stay with me tonight
don't leave me alone tonight
And Silver owns the nighttime
where she knows the men do come
as if the whiskey seems to clear their eyes
she says I can be the one
And she waits for her new lover
well the barman give the last call
she says tonight I give my love to you
but when you take me take it all
Just say heigh ho Silver
when you ride when you ride
when you take me take it all from me
but just stay with me tonight
just say heigh ho Silver
when you ride when you ride
when you take me take it all from me
just stay with me tonight
Just say heigh ho Silver
when you ride when you ride
when you take me take it all from me
but just stay with me tonight
but don't leave me alone tonight
don't leave me alone tonight
just don't leave me alone tonight
