    He came into the world with his eyes wide open
    Knew what it was all about
    He grew into a man that the sun just followed
    Knew himself inside out
    We'd watch him go to work each day
    Come back underneath the moonlit night

    We'd hear them laughing talking always
    Safe behind the walls
    Nobody knew too much about them
    They never even answered calls
    Well, his wife was small and pretty
    Like a shell illuminated by the light

    Well, I know there is a plan
    But at least from where I stand
    I would love to take the place of that man
    For just one night

    Sometimes situations seem
    Too perfect to be true
    People talk and shake their heads
    The way that people do
    You know that small towns show no mercy
    And they see their envy in a different light

    I woke up late to a big commotion
    Wondering what it all was for
    Voices screaming in the darkness
    Fire and smoke next door
    There was someone lying on the lawn
    And someone trapped behind the firelight

    What could we say
    As we watched life slip away
    There was nothing we could do to make it right
    Not on that night

    Leave me here, he said
    Stretched out on the lawn
    I don't think anybody's
    Gonna miss me when I'm gone

    Life is my enemy
    It took my very best
    Left me here to cast away
    The shadows and sort through the mess
    Struggle to get by with all my might
    For one more night

    We'd see him out walking in the streets
    With nothing in his eyes
    People would stop and say hello
    He'd always act surprised
    Well, he'd jump back kind of nervous
    Like a boxer who'd rather walk away than fight

    Just like autumn thunderstorms
    We knew the day would come
    When they talked about it later
    No one even knew he had a gun
    They found him with a picture
    Of his wife beside him such a peaceful sight

    And if God is looking down
    On this little life we've found
    I say you pushed that man until he couldn't fight
    Not one more night

    Leave me here
    Stretched out on the lawn
    I don't think anybody's
    Gonna miss me when I'm gone

    Life is my enemy
    It took my very best
    Left me here to cast away
    The shadows and sort through the mess
    Struggle to get by with all my might
    For one more night Show less
