Best things in life don't come for free
Best things in life always come unexpectedly
Well, we watch the clock and it comes as no surprise
Till the day is late and we let out a sigh
'Cause we know the night could fall at any time
With scissors and a comb I cut my lawn
And there's no one in the world I'm counting on
There's a war ragin' outside - I hope my grass stays green
Till the day is late and we let out a scream
'Cause we know the night could fall down on its knees
We don't know the prime lending ray
And we don't know the pain of a broken day
We don't know what's wrong or what's right
We know the night...we know the night
You can bust your back from now till the sun goes west
Best things always come when your mind's at rest
In the afternoon, my mind ain't sleepy, it's preoccupied
Till the day is late and we let out a sigh
'Cause we know the night could fall at any time
Yeah, we know the night could fall at any time
We know the night...we know the night
