Evangeline (Turnpike Troubadours)

Looking back well I see you With eyes that shouldn't be so blue Clearer than the calm before the rain I saw a light that wasn't there I lived without a single care I loved you & you felt to make the same So beautiful that words cannot define Sweeter than the lords communion wine... Evangeline can't you see I'm sorry Can't you hear my tears ringing through the night Waiting in hell between these bed sheets Pray to god for morning light Then winter came and blood ran cold The ever present sleet and snow Outside a December window pane This house will never, be our home Hand in hand, we walked alone I thought the sun would never shine again Then the oldest violin can never wind A mellow day as sorrowful as mine... Evangeline can't you see I'm sorry Can't you hear my tears ringing through the night Waiting in hell between these bed sheets Pray to god for morning light Now I've seen your face a thousand times, Have nightmares running through my mind & it hurts, Just to pretend But the devil failed and so have I From perfect grace you faced the sky I never thought a love like this would end Now your words cut right thru me like a knife I gave my love and now I take my life... Evangeline can't you see I'm sorry Can't you hear my tears ringing through the night Waiting in hell between these bed sheets Pray to god for morning light Waiting in hell between these bed sheets Pray to God for morning light
