Lyrics

Losing in front of your home crowd

You wish the ground Would open up and take you down And will time never pass? Will time never pass, for us?

Your weary wife is walking away Your nephew is true Well, he thinks the world of you And I have to close my eyes

Losing in front of your home town The crowd call your name They love you, all the same The sound, the smell and the spray you will take them all away And they'll stay 'til the grave

Your weary wife is walking away Your nephew is true Well, he thinks the world of you And I have to close my eyes

Losing in your home town Hell is the bell that will not ring again You will return one day Because of all the things that you see When your eyes close

Your weary wife walking away Your nephew is true He still thinks the world of you And I have to dry my eyes
