This Love

This Love

Follow me close on a road marked with battle scars
And leave me alone as I wash my wounds out with salt
It’s cold where I’ve come from
And I’m too bare bones to be warmed

Sick of waiting out in the cold rain
So I dropped everything to go chase down my train
And the way may trip me
But the path is straight, so I run

Carry me home
When I haven’t the strength
Know the road so I don’t have to be awake
And in the morning part the curtains on this love

The gas tank is empty
But I wanna walk from here on in
My body is heavy
And I feel the noose tightening
But my aim is steady and truer than anything I’ve ever been

Carry me home
When I haven’t the strength
Know the road so I don’t have to be awake
And in the morning part the curtains on this love

Hold me tight
When I’m shaking in my own skin
Through the night
When I’m sick to my stomach again
And it’s all for naught but it says a lot about this love

Oh, I know I’ve been gone for so long
But I’m trying to go
Back to where I belong
I’m taking it slow
So please bide your time my love
‘Cuz I am sure to go where you are

And know me best
When I don’t know who I am
And all the rest of them
Don’t mean a single thing
And it’s fine, I guess
If all I have left in the end
Is this love
