Young men do get older
they wrinkle and gray
They give out the cold shoulder
Then they wither away
Buried in their wreckage
Like ships wrecked in the sea
Caught all up in land mines
For what is and cannot be
She asked me for a light
And I knew right then
It was gonna be a hard night

She said "I'd hate to bore you
But I'm caught up in a man
I set myself before you
To tell you who I am
My faith is running empty
And I'm sick of being burned
I taught myself some lessons
That I wish I'd never learned"
And her eyes were big and bright
And I knew right then
It was gonna be a hard night

I'm just a man out of his mind
The mother ship left me behind
And all the while I've been officially withdrawn
So I turned on you when I should have
Turned you on

I met you in a nightclub
You were working at the bar
I'm thinking about you right now
And I wonder where you are
Some times you loved me lightly
And some times you loved me strong
But you held yourself despite me
And you loved me all along
So I blamed it on my father
And I blamed it on my friends
And I blamed my other lovers
For the way it always ends
But the days of old are over
And I lie awake in bed
There are things I should have told her
There are words I should have said
It was there in black and white
And I feel it now
In the middle of a hard night
