I got caught up in thinkin’
After I saw you
I saw you walk in, eyes purple—
Everything’s fine
I smiled and we laughed
And I thought nothing of it
Nothing of it

But now lookin’ back I am wonderin’
Would you have called me
If you were really in some trouble
Would you have known that I
Would want to know
Would you know I’d want to be
By your side

Middle of the night I’m walking home
I saw a fight, I didn’t stop to see
If it was over, I try to stay out of that scene

Middle of the night, you coulda called
It’s never too late. Anyway, I’m usually
Still awake so you wouldn’t bother me

True, I’d probably start crying
If I saw you
All banged up and bruise
And your face all bloody
But I could keep my tears
Under control
If it meant bein strong for you
Strong for you


Forty long. Degrees towards the east
There’s not much I can do
‘cept write a line or two
To let you know that
Night or day even when you’re far away
I would cry or not cry at all
For you
