In the dry summer days
when the crickets all play
and you know that they
all call for you

I'll be there
with a green-eyed glare
giving you the stare
that you need

You mustn't be blue
I could have love in me too
It just might take a few
years to find it

And if I have it in me
and I don't turn out empty
I swear that you'll be
the first to know

'Cause the days they vanish like smoke
and down to your bones you're a-burnin'
'Cause the vastness of the sea
it don't match what you need
And I'll here you cryin' out to me

So don't make up your mind
It will only take time
'till you're cryin'
and grabbin' for the air, babe

But I see you're resolved
so I'll give it my all
to wait for you to fall
to the floor

'Cause I remember the way
that my father would say
an early grave is the work of a beauty
and I ain't never been hurt
but I do take his word
though I really, really, really,
really don't want to be alone
