lyrics

I have dreamed upon your floor
That I found the love I lost
I have rested on the rocks
Of rivers I had to cross

I've been fed by all my friends
Though I've already wept a creek
I've learned many a secret handshake
And I've held many a weary soul to sleep

Somebody take me home
While I still believe
While the pines are still the pines
And there's something left of me

I have gambled with the years
Held a few hands of tenderness
I was king once for a day
Before the queen laid me to rest

I've been sober on Bourbon Street
Wasted on my wedding day
I've seen the eyes of my love
When there was nothing left to say

Somebody take me home
While I still believe
While the pines are still the pines
And there's something left of me

I have danced with gypsy girls
Who sang a spell into my ear
I've seen every United State
And I have rocked a newborn babe

I built fires to burn through the night
Had to put out some that burn too bright
Swam in the bayou while drinking rum
I've waited on saviors who didn't come

Somebody take me home
While I still believe
While the pines are still the pines
And there's something left of me
