Commentary

Mark’s “Westgate” album track comments:

“Two people resolve to dig for something deeper in their lives. There’s been an accident that tests their faith in each other. They must pull together or love will die.”

 

Lyrics

Dry your eyes
I said “you’ll live
To fight another day”

Love alone
Is it all we’ve got
When dreams have blown away?

Lay your head on my shoulder
There is no end in sight
I’ll do my best to comfort you
For hell broke free tonight

Don’t ask me why I hesitate
To cross the great divide
There’s something new between us now
And there’s nowhere for love to hide

I’ll do my best to be with you
For we must suffer or fight
Please don’t stand alone in the dark my love
For hell broke free tonight

Hell broke free tonight
Hell broke free tonight
Just give me something I can hold on to
For hell broke free tonight

Everyone’s waiting
The telephone rang
And time stood still
You’re all talking too much
But can’t you see she’s breaking down?

Lay your head on my shoulder
There is no end in sight
I’ll do my best to comfort you
For hell broke free tonight

Hell broke free tonight
Please don’t stay alone in the dark my love
For hell broke free tonight
