If I should close my eyes, that my soul can see,
And there's a place at the table that you saved for me.
So many thousand miles over land and sea,
I hope to dare, that you hear my prayer,
And somehow I'll be there.
It's but a concrete floor where my head will lay,
And though the walls of this prison are as cold as clay.
But there's a shaft of light where I count my days,
winter - зима
where - где
walls - стены
thoughts - мысли
though - хоть
there - там
table - таблица
swear - клянусь
stare - глазеть
count - подсчитывать
despair - отчаяние
comes - выходит
