Chapter 6.21 – Endlessly

In the calm of night, I hear ’em. Can’t see ’em, but I know they’re there.
Friends and neighbors, kindred spirits; disappeared, I don’t know where.
 
As a kid I went out lookin’ for this place where they’d go.
I wasn’t sure if I’d find it, but sure enough I’d try.
Sometimes I’d go all day – check’n the ground, check’n the sky.
All day long I’d be out there, but I’d never have nothin’ to show.
 
In the calm of night, I hear ’em. Can’t see ’em, but I know they’re there.
Friends and neighbors, kindred spirits; disappeared, I don’t know where.
Oh, but I sure don’t know where.
 
I try to remember faces smilin’ at me, makin’ me smile right on back.
The kind words, gentle voices, easin’ my mind helpin’ me face the day.
It’d have been hell without ’em, couldn’t have done it any other way.
Now there ain’t point in tryin’ any more, at night it’s just pitch black.
 
[Guitar Solo]

I smell her hair and feel her breath’n next to me, I remember wonder’n if we should.
I know I’ll never know – ’cause then I hear her voice askin’ me what’s goin’ on.
I got no words to say, I can’t move or make a sound, I just stare and then she’s gone.
Ain’t nothin’ to do but give her my word I won’t forget, and pray I can make it good.
 
[Bridge]
They said that it ain’t happenin’ But I knew it really was.
I seen it right before my eyes, I knew each and every one.
I ain’t gonna say I’m sorry or pretend I didn’t know.
Cause I told them I’d remember, and that’s just how it’s gonna go.
[Bridge]
 
In the calm of night, I hear ’em. Can’t see ’em, but I know they’re there.
Friends and neighbors, kindred spirits; disappeared, I don’t know where.
Yeah, taken, but don’t know where.
 
[quiet]
Grown up now, in a different world, I hear my baby callin’ me.
[growing louder]
I remember my word and think of them, and the little fun we had.
The clouds have cleared and the way ahead doesn’t seem to be too bad.
Though my lady doesn’t hear em, she listens; cause she loves me endlessly.
[loud]
Yeah she loves me for me, Lord; and she loves me endlessly.
 
In the calm of night, I hear ’em. Can’t see ’em, but I know they’re there.
Friends and neighbors, kindred spirits; disappeared, I don’t know where.
In the calm of night, I hear ’em. Can’t see ’em, but I know they’re there.
Friends and neighbors, kindred spirits; disappeared, I don’t know where.
 
No I can’t see ’em, but I know they’re there.
Yeah, I know they’re there.
Lord, I know they’re there.
