UNSATISFIED HEART

Sir I am a pilgrim
A stranger in this land
Once I had a home here
My salvation was at hand
I lived in a house of gold
Yeah, on a far hillside
I had two beautiful children
And a kind and loving wife

Can you live with an unsatisfied heart?
with unsatisfied heart, can you live
with unsatisfied heart, can you live
with unsatisfied heart, can you live
with unsatisfied heart

One day a man came to town
With nothing and nowhere to go
He came to me and he mentioned
Something I'd done a long time ago
I allowed him into my home
on his vow that secret wouldn't see the light
At night I'd lay awake in my wife's arms
She'd sigh, "George, you alright?"

Day after daytime
Yeah, time passed on by
But I could feel myself changing
Yeah, changing deep inside
One night I woke up
And as my wife did sleep
I got dressed in the darkness
And I fled into the street

Can you live with an unsatisfied heart?

Well, night after night
The same dream keeps coming 'round
I'm standing high in the green hills
On the outskirts of town
Night air fills my lungs
And rustles my shirt
I can see the house where we lived
The building where I used to work
As I draw near
The town's lit by a red summer moon
I feel your arms around me
I wake up in this room

Can you live with an unsatisfied heart?
