"In the Night"

In the night
In the night I saw a star
In the star I saw a light
In the light I saw your eye

And it's all coming back to me
It's all coming back to me
It's all coming back to me
And it's not what it seems to be 

Oh you were right
I should have never have gone alone  
I should have never have gone at all
But you were gone and I was on fire

And if pride ain't worth fighting for 
And if I just ignore it
It builds up inside of me
And where am I going to store it?

I hit him twice
I told him you were my girl
I told home never to come around
Before his buddies took me down, down, down

And he was standing over me
And I saw him laughing
I said, "Man you're bleeding"
He said "You just got your ass kicked"

And he was right 
I walked home with two black eyes
I walked in and you were crying
You said, "How could you be smiling?"

I said, "Despite these black eyes of mine,
And my bloody grin,
And my bruised body,
I feel alive again"

In the night
In the night I saw a star
In the star I saw a light
In the light I saw your eye
