Lyrics

She walks the streets at midnight,
As darkness wraps its silent arms around her.
She never tells her secrets,
Though her secrets tell the sorrows of a lifetime.
She knows how they all want her,
Yet no one wants to know what her last name is,
She walks the streets at midnight,
Her steps weave an endless chain of broken promises.

When her time with someone ends,
No need to pretend.
She knows love's boundaries.

A boy stares out the window
As she leaves again
To meet the one who called for her.
He knows her as his mother,
But, of many, there's not one to call a father.
He knows how they all choose her,
And shudders at the fear that he will lose her.
She walks the streets at midnight,
Her steps weave an endless chain of broken promises.

When her time with someone ends,
No need to pretend.
She knows love's boundaries.

Nobody told her
There'd be no comfort In the morning.
Nobody told her
She'd lose her soul with no warning.

Although he never knew him,
He knows his path's exactly like his father's.
He runs from all that's good for him,
Drinks hard so he won't contemplate the reasoning.
Remembering long cold nights
When he was slepping on the docks beside his mother,
And now to his own children,
He still cannot break the chain of broken promises.

When her time with someone ends,
No need to pretend.
She knows love's boundaries.
