Lyrics
Standing waiting for a man to show
Wide-eyed, one eye fixed on the door
This waiting's killing me
It's getting me down
Day in day out
My feet are wearing holes in the ground

Darkness, woman and a bedroom floor
Want someone to hold me close forever more
I'm a sleeping dog
But you can't tell
When I'm on the prowl
You'd better run like hell

You know it makes sense, don't you think about it
Life and death are things we only do when we're bored
Say fear is a man's best friend
Say fear is a man's best friend
Say fear is a man's best friend
You add it up it brings you down
You add it up it brings you down

Home is living like a man on the run
Days leading nowhere
"Where to my son ?"
We're already dead
But not yet in the ground
Come on, hold my shaking hand
And I'll show you around
