Peter graciously allowed me to spin this off as another version was being put together by other musicians.


Lyrics

Lover's Tears 

 

I'll drive a thousand rivets home

Forge a thousand tons of steel

I'll mine a thousand seams of coal

Just to hide the pain I feel

 

I walk up to the gate

that takes so much

for so little in return

I stand among the crowd

Head in my hands

I call your name

 

You watched me as I walked away

You waited five long years

The salty taste upon your tongue

The sting of lover's tears

 

Take Me Home

To a world without machines

Are you there?

And is the grass still green?

 

I walk along the path

that leads me back

to the land I left behind

You stand at the door

Arms open wide

You call my name

 

I put my arms around my love

As the morning songs ring clear

I wake to find the dream has gone

 

And cry bitter lover's tears
