lyrics

The wounded and the weary gather up their luggage from the war
They move to new addresses and never see old lovers anymore
When you get home each day it’s the still the same old number on the door
You’ve had just the one but I’ve had many homes before

What you say you feel inside it’s really not that strange
I have always felt the same just never knew the name

You say swim into my eyes
But they’re too shallow
You say come rest on my heart
But it’s too narrow
You say let’s be like doves
But I’m just a sparrow

The motor was a’ running but the car was still sitting in it’s spot
I was thinking about driving but really I knew I’d rather not
I was sitting there hoping you would come down and give me a shot
Be it bourbon or affection, whatever it is that you’ve got

About what you say you feel inside it’s a well-known fact
When you feel the most unsure’s the most certain time to act

You say swim into my eyes
But they’re too shallow
You say come rest on my heart
But it’s too narrow
You say let’s sing like doves
But I’m just a sparrow

You can turn at a dozen paces and find that I’ve already run
I could have stayed to duel with you but I never thought that kinda love was fun
I was leaving the farm and I thought the two of us was done
I would have never guessed that you carried a loaded gun

Why didn’t I realize there was a bulls-eye on my back
And you had just been waiting for the right time to attack

You say swim into my eyes
But they’re too shallow
You say come rest on my heart
But it’s too narrow
You say let’s make love like doves
But I’m just a sparrow
