Sleep Dark and Silent Gate

Sleep Dark and Silent Gate

Jackson Browne

Sometimes I lie awake at night and wonder
Where my life will lead me
Waiting to pass under sleep's dark and silent gate

I found my love too late
Running around day after day
Looking for the time to play
While my old friends slipped away

Never shoulda had to try so hard
To make a love work out, I guess
I don't know what love has got to do with happiness
But the times when we were happy
Were the times we never tried

(Sitting down by the highway)
Looking down the road
(Waiting for a ride)
I don't know where I've been
(Wishing I could fly away)
Don't know where I'm going
(Wishing I could hide)
Oh, God, this is some shape I'm in
When the only thing that makes me cry
Is the kindness in my baby's eyes

Sometimes I lie awake at night and wonder
Where the years have gone
They have all passed under
Sleep's dark and silent gate
