Deep Inside the Night

Sad face, staring out into the sea;
Waiting for the tide to turn around her feet,
Killing time until the dawn.

Old face, much too old for one so young,
For she has known the damage done by pain,
Has had scant joy in the love she's made.

Somewhere, deep inside the night
There's a longing, trying to be found;
Somewhere, deep inside her heart
There's a love which knows no bounds.

Young face, with eyes to catch the coming sun.
Lays her head upon his faithless lap
And sleeps, clothed in kisses 'till the dawn.
