sleep alone tonight i know cause
tonight like any other you
laugh so easy hate
over and over laugh so
easy easy laugh again
an arab there must be reverence
inseparable from proper objects
city plains highway clover leaf stranger
sunk in a vast knowledge
filled with old heroes
takes guts to be gentle and kind i m not
afraid not afraid to speak i m not alone "
