(Written by the late Mark Heard)

Tears in the city, but nobody's surprised.
You know my heart's taking a beating.
Existence is bleeding me dry.

The world's in a shambles. I'm just a young man.
But it's getting a little old to me.
I'm already aching, the years have been taking,
A little bit of toll on me.

Two in the morning, the siren's is a warning'
That everything's not quite right
The city is sleepin',
I'm down on my knees in the night tonight.

You know way down in my heart of hearts
Way down in my soul of souls
Way down I know
that I'm a fortunate man
To have known divine love.
