Long and Lonely Nights

Wes Tillett

Waitin’ for you to smile
Takin’ the longest mile
I broke down just up the lane
Burned out the engine of faith

This might be one of those long and lonely nights
I might not ever get over you
I might not ever get use to callin’ out
To the walls of this empty room

Grinnin’ right through the pain
Sinnin’ with no restraint
Deaf now to every voice
Dumb now in every choice

This might be one of those long and lonely nights
I might not ever get over you
I might not ever get use to callin’ out
To the walls of this empty room

All my prayers seem to get to the ceiling and stop
And I can’t seem to get all the bleeding to stop
There’s a hole in my soul just the shape of you
And the hole seems to grow no matter what I do

This might be one of those long and lonely nights
I might not ever get over you
I might not ever get use to callin’ out
To the walls of this empty room
