Solace for Pain

Solace for Pain
Help me when I'm sad and lonely
I would never do you harm
But this life is unfamiliar
I don't mean to cause alarm
If I were to put the big light out
Surely there would be an end?
If I were to face a new day
Surely I would need a friend?

Sir you do possess such kind eyes
Many are so vacant where
Ought to be a patient tenderness
I would take my refuge there
Sir you do possess such kind eyes
Like a saint in books of old
Painted with a hue of prophecy
Speak the fate we must behold:

When the swallow has flown
And the night is getting cold
Turn away from hopelessness
There'll be solace for your pain
