I remember how I let you down
Everything you say reminds me of the pain
How you lost your dignity
Passing in and out of a dream

Is there some secret I'm supposed to know
Is there some secret I'd always miss
'cause there's no dignity when you have to live
Within the boundaries of a kiss

And the nightwatchman
Yeah he's asleep
Nightwatchman
Oh come on tell me what's wrong
Nightwatchman
Is the night too long

Is the same lie you gave me before
I don't care anything you say is just fine
I'll just sit and watch the traffic passing by outside
The will in the world it's the prevailing tide

You're supposed to watch the night as it passes by
You're never supposed to need anyone
'cause once I knew the secret to happiness
I knew it was oh but now it's gone

And the nightwatchman
Yeah he's asleep
Nightwatchman
I can't wake him up
Watchman
C'mon tell me what's wrong
Nightwatchman
Is the night too long
