Spare a thought for me

Soft melodies from the bar room 
Sounds so nice to hear
Perhaps they are extra inviting
To a country boy like me…..
Persuasion waits at every turn
It just won’t let me be
Honey when you retire to bed tonight
Spare a thought for me.

I miss your gentle hold and kiss
Of love and romance
These thoughts of love now so cruel and wanting
So honey when you retire for sleep tonight
And search for the lost dreams
Spare a special thought for me.

As the night grows old and lonely
And I am here far away from you and home 
Wishing for someone to kiss and hold
Know that distance and loneliness is what makes a young lad go wrong
Evil searches through the night for uncertain guys like me
So darling when you retire for sleep tonight
Spare a moment for me

I miss your tender hold and kiss
Of love and assurance
These thoughts of love so cruel and wanting
Darling when you retire for sleep tonight
Searching for the sweet dreams and memories
Spare a thought for me.
