Oh the the night is so still, not a baby will cry
Not a chill wind will blow, disturbing the sky
But there's no peace in me, I'm burning for you
I'm walking the floor in the devil's shoes.
When I get my rewards, I will bring them to you
I shall ask for your love, and swear mine is true
Will you cast me aside, and see me no more?
How can I win your heart when I get my rewards?
They say that your hair can never touch mine
That a poor boy can't hope for a woman so fine
But I work till I fall, determined to win
Driven by need to see you again
