In my head
I am already gone
Side roads boarded up
Decisions decided on

But in my nights
There are restless hours
3 AM goes down
Nothing else comes up

And the only thing we know
Is it's getting dark and we better go
And the only thing we say
Are the despairs of the day

And if you're too tired
Go to sleep, my brothers, I
And if you're too tired
Go to sleep, my brothers
I'm alright to drive

And in my heart
I'm the weary kind
I'm much too tired to cry
Though it's sad enough for tears
It's been try fail try for years
When the next year comes along
I don't know if I'll be home
I don't know if we'll survive

And the only thing we know
Is it's getting dark and we better go
And the only thing we say
Are the despairs of the day

And if you're too tired
Go to sleep, my brothers, I
And if you're too tired
Go to sleep, my brothers
I'm alright to drive

And we're much too young of men
To carry such heavy heads
And tonight for the first time
It felt good to be alive
And we're much too young of men
To carry such heavy heads
And tonight for the first time
It felt good to be alive again, my friend

The only thing we know
Is it's getting dark and we better go
And the only thing we say
Are the despairs of the day

And if you're too tired
Go to sleep, my brothers, I
And if you're too tired
Go to sleep, my brothers, I
And if you're too tired
Go to sleep, my brothers, I
And if you're too tired
Go to sleep, my brothers
I'm alright to drive
