I Cheat The Hangman Lyrics

The days grow short, the nights are gone
Since you were here, I can't go on
I cried for you, to no avail
Now my life runs cold when the night winds wail

But I cheat the hangman, cheated him many times before
The bell that tolls the hour has turned sweet lips to sour
Yes, I cheat the hangman and even when life has flown away
I leave a kiss behind

The rain that fell upon my stone
Like tears you cry I shared alone
I walk the night, I cannot sleep
The love you spend you cannot reap

But I cheat the hangman, cheated him many times before
The bell that tolls the hour has turned sweet lips to sour
Yes, I cheat the hangman and even when life has flown away
I leave a kiss behind

The glow of love will shine
Lighted windows stare
At the stranger there returning home
Only lighted windows stare
At the lonely stranger there returning home

I leave a kiss behind
The glow of love will shine
Lighted windows stare
At the stranger there returning home
Only lighted windows stare
At the lonely stranger there returning home
