Won`t be home tonight

I won`t be home for long baby
Now that I`m on the run
The law is after me darling
For something I haven't done
People may say that I am no good
But believe me I did everything I could

Tell the children that I love them
Daddy won`t be home for long
There is no justice served here baby
They'll explain you when I am gone
The papers saying that I`m no good
But there is no wrong I am just misunderstood

Under this bridge I hide
Longing for you to be by my side
But baby I won`t be home tonight
Baby baby I won`t be home tonight

Look at the man that is desperate
And the lines that scar his face
When his strength is weakening
He feels he may lose the race
He understands that not all that shines is gold
And not all is true of what he has been told

When wind and winter harden
Will we survive in this loveless land?
My tears will leave no stain
When they are mixed with the falling rain
When time has come to lay my head to rest
Will you hold my hand when bullets hit my chest?
