The Ballad of a Road warrior

The streetlight outside lights up the night
you've gone to bed long long time ago
I listen to the silence, the house is all gone quiet
I know I'll miss you when I am gone
My bags they are packed, the road calls once again
But I don't want to sleep just yet
You see when this long night comes to an end
I gotta leave you sleeping alone once again

You know this house we call home
just a roof and these four walls
It all means nothing at all
without you

I crawl into the bed in the dead of the night
and listen to you breath for awhile
I wrap my arms around you, I'm scared to let you go
it's killing me to leave you behind
And when I'm on that road, for another thousand miles
another hour pass by, a minute at a time
I'll be counting down the days, when I can look you in the eyes
The thought of you never leaves my mind

This is a ballad of an old roar warrior
On his way home once again
And I wonder if this time
I could stay
