lyrics

Fighting back the urge to take to flight
As this day turns once again into night
Pack my bags, hitch a trailer to the car
Or leave it all behind save for my guitar

Somedays I look around
And feel so goddamn proud of this town
And then there are the moments where I yearn for more
And that’s when I get up and head for the door

But how my heart it breaks when I think of leaving you
And you, and you, and you, and you, and you
You’ve rocked my soul like a baby in arms
Cradles me wild with charm, wild with charm

So I’ll quit the bottle, you’ll quit the dice
Maybe we’ll meet back here some beautiful night
I might remember and you might forget
But the simplicity of things will remind us of it, of it

Oh the feeling of the wind in my hair
Comes from travelling over yonder there
Aching for that light in my life
Come for me please this precious night

Despite this bitter ache in the bottom of my soul
I can’t seem to get up and take control
For that would mean leaving all of this behind
This town, these people, all loves of mine

But how my heart it breaks when I think of leaving you
And you, and you, and you, and you, and you
You’ve rocked my soul like a baby in arms
Cradles me wild with charm, wild with charm

So I’ll quit the bottle, you’ll quit the dice
Maybe we’ll meet back here some beautiful night
I might not remember and you might not forget
But the simplicity of things will remind us of it, of it
So I’ll go tell the mountains, you go tell the sea
All of these things so beautifully
Loving me like never before
Making this whole wide world crazy wanting more, wanting more
