(Bass Verse1)
What is life if not a joke
one night she went out for smokes
(Guitar Slide)(Bass Verse2)
and they took her apart like a rag doll
(Bass Verse1)
in the back of a van
in an Alabama motel room
I have one of them tied up in the bathroom
(Guitar Slide)(Bass Verse2)
I am down and out
(Bass Verse1)
but he will not get away with it again
(Guitar-Palm Mute D)

(Chorus)
When the night comes in
I hope I'm out of the rain
When the night comes in
she makes me whole again

(Same as verse 1)
I never sleep, I just watch TV
and the gun, it lies next to me
whispering
in an Alabama motel room
I reflect on her sweet perfume
I am down and out
but they will not get away with it again

(Chorus)
When the night comes in
I hope I'm out of the rain
When the night comes in
she makes me whole again

(Break)
Say you love me
we will never get the chance again

(Chorus)
When the night comes in
I hope I'm out of the rain
When the night comes in
she makes me whole again
When the night comes in
I hope I'm out of the rain
(Outro)
When the night comes in
I hope I'm out of the rain
