Mojave Rain

On The Floor

When the lights go down in the city
Getting real low
Settling in my room
I'm unnoticed
When a still comes in through my window
Letting me go
I feel a calm come over me
On the floor

On the floor
Where the rats all come away clean
They're on the floor
Where the children all stomped and screamed
Straight out the door
Well I find myself on my knees
Begging please

When the lights go down in the city
And everyone goes
To their room
Walking the trail to dreamland
When the lights go down in the city
Something is roaring
And I find myself
Waiting to believe

On the floor
Where the mice call shots in the corner
That's where I'll be
When the crickets come home and sing
Their symphony
Well I find myself on my knees
Begging please

On the floor
Facing the things I've done
Here on the floor
Where the years have gathered and run
That's where I'll be
And I find myself on my knees
Begging please
