about

one of liz solo's first songs - a love song for dorothy and ray. special guest player - luke power on dobro.

lyrics

dee married ray
on a cold february day
the sky was pissing rain
and the city was grey
they stood hand in hand
in the eyes of the law
and made their vow
and then they ran away
took a long long ride
on a train

oh we can keep it together
and we'll keep on trying
cuz we're here for laughing
we're not here for crying
and now we're not orphans anymore
baby you're alway in my head
and every night
we'll go to bed

living low down in the part of the city where
it's all run down and nobody cares
barely enough for getting by
even when the welfare cheque is on time
somebody's baby's crying
in the room down the hall
she's staring out the window
at that big blank wall
her tears run down
racing to hit the floor

oh we can keep it together
and we'll keep on trying
cuz we're here for laughing
we're not here for crying
and now we're not orphans anymore
baby you're alway in my head
and every night
we'll go to bed

she standing in the kitchen
pacing back and forth
he's been gone all night again
like a hundred times before
he's keeping a date
with his demons
and every single night
it's always the same
til he comes crashing down the hall
with his eyes rolled up into his brain

oh we can keep it together
and we'll keep on trying
cuz we're here for living
we're not here for dying
and now we're not orphans anymore
baby you're alway in my head
and every night we'll go to bed
every night we'll go to bed
tonight, come on, let's go to bed
