I know that it was the night
The war broke out because
You and I were driving around
You were doing a story
About if people understood
What had happened to their world
Tonight in bed sleeping
A world in bed tonight asleep

You said that you were in touch
With the draft resistors
In case the big boys called you up
You're gonna have to let 'em
Dick you around
But don't let 'em make you do
What you can't live with
Tonight in bed with me sleeping
You looked like you were just a little kid

Shane, I said, you've got to wat
You've gotta have fear in your heart (x 3)

I can hear a friend once saying to me
You've got a thing about men
You're gonna like when they throw you around
But don't let 'em make a fool out of you
Tonight in bed with you sleeping
The world in bed tonight asleep

Shane, I said, you've got to watch your ass
You've gotta have fear in your heart (x 3)
