Down Too Deep

Another day almost gone
It won't be long 'till you are out of here
And you will soon be home
Just thank God it's Friday night
You know a little bar where you
Can disappear quite out of sight

You don't laugh like you should
You don't smile like you should
This life has torn the ground from underneath your feet
And I can't reach you
You're down too deep

Your wife she says there's no chance
To re-discover all those happy days
Of love and true romance
It's the same for all her friends
It's the children now that matter
And you've got to meet the ends


So you will watch the children grow
And you will justify the sacrifice
But you'll never let it show
It's just a heavy hand of fate
You know that dreams are made for dreamers
You just realise too late
