Night is falling
We're doing the things we do
You are acting just like me
I'm acting just like you

Do you remember
When you were my friend?
That's the way I'd like things
Just like way back then

Baby's sleeping
Brother is on the run
I am out undoing
All the good I've done

If you loved me
Tell you what I would do
Wrap the world in silver foil
Bring it home to you

Lately, I feel
That I can't pretend
I may never ever see
The likes of you again

I take a walk, I come back home
Then I sit a spell
Watch the ponies dance around
The empty wishing well

Night has fallen
I've said the things I did
The only baby sleeping
Is when I was a kid

Do you remember
When you were my friend?
That's the way I'd like things
Just like way back then
