To Stand Before The Child

 

And inside a lonesome life there's always something bright

and I've got to see this one right through

 

Cuz since I found a man I've never known to stand

so very far away from you

 

And when the rain will fall there's only time to call

out just to stand before the child

And she's got a lonesome face full of the eyes that chase

all of the boys around the room

 

And if only lives would last there'd be some more to pass

drinks down and right around this room

 

And with the turnin' time I've got the fire's inline

and now I know's what I'm to do

 

And if I'm to be the one with all these things to've done

I'd gladly take the place of you

 

There's lands inside of me I want to see

And there's lands inside of you I want to do

 

And he's got these lovely eyes full of a face that smiles
