take me home, take me home
i feel i'm ready to be laid down.
i live in a big house across the way
from a diamond field, they play baseball games
hear em call, chasing fly balls
into my yard, gonna catch em all
do you know where we're going now?
come on, it ain't that far to walk
we might catch the game fireworks go off
how can you say no
when you say my name so soft?
i know what they say, tobacco town
got smoke in her eyes. can't get it out.
but I can see fine, you got a face for listening
and i got a big bed we can both sleep in in
except i get up early
i never liked curtains
always racing the coffee
getting made up in the kitchen
never a day i don't wanna be awake
come on, it ain't that far to go
what you so afraid of, boy?
the road goes both ways
so here is your highway love, don't you feel free
tonight? tomorrow's so close
a fleet-footed comfort, really.
so, take off your shoes,
don't let the lights fool you,
this is a red dirt game.
give it your clay hands,
your last chance praying
oh, daylight's coming.
morning will be a sweet bird humming us awake
