lyrics

Sweet Ilene, wash your hands clean
of the mess that left you behind.
I got a bottle of wine and a place in my mind
we could go if you really want to.

Where the sun never sleeps
You just live in a dream
And there ain't nobody to hurt you

Baby, I ain't the kind
to ask you outright
But I'm feelin' brave tonight.

Ilene, it's so hard to watch your light shine
It used just to shine on for miles.
Come away with me doll, he don't love you at all
And he ain't worth all those precious tears.

And hearin' you cry
Makes me wanna die
Let's leave this whole mess behind

Baby, I ain't the kind
to ask you outright
But I'm feelin' brave tonight.

Ilene, come away with me
I've got two tickets, you just say when...
Ilene, it ain't as hard as it seems
I will teach you how to shine again...

Baby, I ain't the kind
to ask you outright
But I'm feelin' brave tonight.
