Every night I’m thereI’m always thereShe knows I’m thereAnd heaven knowsI hope she goes
I find it hardTo realise that love was in her eyesIt’s dying nowShe knows I’m crying now
And every night I’m thereI break my heart to pleaseEloiseEloise
You know I’m on my knees, yeahI said pleaseYou’re all I want so hear my prayerMy prayer
My Eloise is like the stars that please the nightThe sun that makes the dayThat lights the way …
