I got my plans from trembling hands
I knew just what to do
Follow each step carefully
And hope they pulled me through

My father ran to different lands
And not a word we spoke
But I was here to conquer fear
And bring some glory home

Theres a world of hate and sorrow
Out there standing in your way
Theres a load of compromise
Before you die

And each time you step forward
You get burned a little bit
No longer know the way
To say goodbye

Now Im down here underneath
Your bedroom light
Oh, Rena please come out
With me tonight

I look in through the window
And I thought Id take my chance
I taught myself to play
So I could be where people danced

No higher call than stars that fall
I waited patiently
A thousand miles of pavement
That became my destiny

You can wait a lonely lifetime
Wondering when its gonna come
You can while away the hours
Getting stoned

Yeah, one day you get lucky
And you look in someones eyes
That tell you, you dont
Have to be alone

Now Im falling back
Just out of your sight
Oh, Rena please come out
With me tonight

Oh, now I know the way things go
And what I put you through
'Cause when they try to get to me
They get to me through you

I know its not the kind of hurt
Thats easily set right
And I know you got your reasons
To stay inside

Oh, but nothing ever happens
When its left out on its own
You locked in there with
Just your wounded pride

Im down here and Im
Way too tired to fight
Oh, Rena please come out
With me tonight
Oh, Rena please come out
With me tonight
