song title:The Things I Do
date: 1993-10-00
lyrics: 

verse 1:
As the darkness falls around you,
and the moon is riding high.
Light a candle and remember,
as you light a smoke and sigh.

verse 2:
As you burn the midnight oil,
I will burn a bowl or two.
As you sit and watch the sunrise,
I'll still sing this song for you....

chorus:
I just can't help the things I do;
All night long, the whole day through.
I couldn't stop if I wanted to;
I'll always sing this song for you...

verse 3:
As the light grows in the morning,
and you�re still hiding in your heart.
Smokey eyes and bitter teardrops
don't do justice to my part.

verse 4:
Draw the curtain, crack the window,
let a little Sun shine through.
All the darkness comes from outside,
all my sunshine comes from you...

chorus:
I just can't help the things I do;
All night long, the whole day through.
I couldn't stop if I wanted to;
I'll always sing this song for you...for you...

I just can't help the things I do;
All night long, the whole day through.
I couldn't stop if I wanted to;
I'll always sing this song for you...for you...for you.
