Night Watchman
 words and music by Steve Gregoropoulos (Temple Bells, BMI administered by BMG)

Night watchman with your head in the air
Night watchman you can watch the evening sun go down
hey now, you’re so debonaire
Night watchman
you walk along the side of the town
Night watchman

Night watchman
Night Watchman
oh night watchman

you carry your things at your side
but there’s never enough oh no there’s never too much of this easter
you’ve got the falling of the tides, you were waiting for me
but I was already halfway to see her
Night Watchman
Night Watchman
oh night watchman

as you stand outside and you stare at yourself
the gates have all been penetrated
card shelf and the whispering pines
you live in the darkness, you live at the edge of a tunnel
I miss the sound of clacking and ink
everything is so 17th century

Night watchman
