Take me away from this hungry old earth,
take me away from this tired and lonely thirst.
I've got nothing at all, since your love went and died;
are you making you crawl, am I making you cry?
Am I making you cry?
Take me away from this sledgehammer night.
Take me away on a matress of velvet in a clear-water candlelight.
And the sun's gonna shine where the sun never shone;
I'm comin' out of the dark, I can't make it alone,
I can't make it alone.
Doncha know that I'm always waiting?
Doncha see that I'll always be hoping?
Doncha know that I'm anticipating
my happy ending.
Oh, my happy ending.
Give me my happy ending,
and I'll be home free,
home free and we made it just in time.
Oh oh take me away from this hungry old earth,
take me away from this tired and dusty thirst.
There's only one thing left to do;
take me away ... I'll marr (song fades out before she can say "marry you"
