Sherwood Schwartz - Under A Lamp lyrics

Call me out of my hovel;
I long to see the sun.
My legs try to carry me
but my heart weighs me down.

So burn this in my eyes
until I see your outline,
and carve this on my lips
until you see my blood drip.

And just that I
can pen these words tonight
is proof enough for me
that there is more than meets the eye.
And this is my simple lullaby
to try and put to rest
any loneliness inside.

So farewell [to this life I have led thus far].
