"In the Heart of Every Cop"

I saw the headlines tonight
And I saw you there
With your head hung low
And I wanted so to speak.
I wanted to say
My darling, my sweet
I' am sorry, but I had to go.
I tried to hang on
But the shadow was gone
Just a bright and beaming Light.
And it beckoned me
And it summoned me
And I  just couldn't say no!
So forgive me my love
For you know I am true
And I love you all the while.
But the Drummer has Drummed
And you know that it hums
In the heart of every cop.
