Verse 1

Hey, baby, don’t you look good standing there by my window

I feel like I’m falling, if you love me, darling, then let it show

I try to please you, you change like the North wind blows

You don’t know me if you think I’ll let you go

 

Chorus

I will hold you close when you’re far away

and I’ll stay with you ’till they dig my grave

When your shoulder’s cold and your heart is black

I’ll be that homebound highway that brings you back

 

Verse 2

Let’s forget all the venomous words echoing from the slamming doors

Silence all the whispers, baby, I’m the one you’ve been looking for

You give me a feeling I have never felt before

Please don’t keep me waiting, I don’t want to fight anymore

 

Chorus

I will hold you close when you’re far away

and I’ll stay with you ’till they dig my grave

When your shoulder’s cold and your heart is black

I’ll be that homebound highway that brings you back

 

Bridge

There will be times when the weight of the world lies heavy on your back

I’ll be your rock when the stone that we built our house on starts to crack

 

Chorus

I will hold you close when you’re far away

and I’ll stay with you ’till they dig my grave

When your shoulder’s cold and your heart is black

I’ll be that homebound highway that brings you back
