  • Lady time fly away
    I've been thinking 'bout my yesterday
    Oh, please listen darlin' to my empty prayers
    Sleep inside my dreams tonight
    All I need to know tonight are you and my child

    Oh, is he a soldier or is he a dreamer?
    Is he mama's little man?
    Does he help you when he can?
    Or does he ask about me?

    Just like a soldier boy
    I been out fighting wars
    That the world never knows about
    But I never win them loud
    There's no crowds around me

    But when I get to thinkin'
    'bout the old days
    When love was here to stay
    I wonder if we'd ever tried
    Oh, what I'd give to hold him.
