The Fabric of Life - Voice of Midnight

I didn’t know you before I was 14 years old, really

Voice of Midnight

Don’t want to go too soon
Don’t want to stay too long
Don’t want to go too quick into the night
Don’t want to linger on and on

Don’t want to leave you a mess
Don’t want to cause a fuss
Roll me into the hole
And cover me up

I’d like to know when it’s coming
Just a little time to prepare
When the voice of midnight comes
And into oblivion I stare

There’s no one waitin’ on me
No heaven or hell
The only vow I

Fabric of Life - A Lifelong Love

When we scheduled our recent break from oil field gate guarding here in North Texas I was hoping it was going to be a slow period.  You see, we work harder when multiple rigs are drilling or multiple frac crews are working.  When we work harder, we get paid more.  I did not want to miss any of that extra cash  — and we didn’t.   On our return, one H&P FlexRig had shown up and they are going to be here about 2 months punching 3 holes so everything is good.   It is nice to get a little break from
