Danger Of The Daylight

It's hard mama, it's so damn hard
For the rain to wash away the tears
An' yes, O Poppa, I done did yes
I've tried to drink away the fears
The danger of the daylight
is overwhelming as it beats on down you
It's more than stagefright
And the appaulse can't come too soon
It's hard Lord, yes it is so hard
My tears they just fall like rain
An' yes Holy Mother, yes they do
Fall to only seperate brother Cain
The danger of the daylight
Frightens blood pumping in our veins
It's more than a disease
That makes us all want to stay
Danger O Brother Danger
The Belly of The Beast
Warm air behind my neck
Lord I can feel the heat
It's hard Mama, it's so very hard
Laughter, that you never knew as pain
Yes Lord Jesus, yes, I can see
That there's no one left to blame
The danger of the daylight
Has got my ghosts running in circles
It's more than just loss of love
It's getting through all of her hurdles
