One Of These Nights

I’m weak from hunger and flu.

Loneliness will find you in between the wrong and the right.

Coming right behind you, swear I’m gonna find you one of these nights.

Gonna settle down. Get married. To someone reliable and dependable and Orthodox.

In between the dark and the light.
