Take Me Back

I LEFT HOME BEFORE THE HARVEST
BEFORE THE HARD WORK WOULD START
MY OLD MAN WAS DISAPPOINTED
AND I BROKE MY MOTHER’S HEART

I LEFT HOME FOR ALL THE REASONS
THAT YOUNG MEN ALWAYS DO
TOWN LIKE THIS KEEPS YOU BELIEVING
THIS IS ALL THERE IS FOR YOU

TAKE ME BACK WHERE THEY’RE STILL WAITING
TAKE ME BACK WHERE MY HEART STILL BEATS
WHERE THEY ALWAYS LEAVE THE LIGHT ON
AND THE DOOR IS OPEN TO ME

I LEFT HOME WITH ALL THE CONFIDENCE
OF A FIGHTER IN HIS PRIME
AND ANY HAND THAT I WAS OFFERED
I WAS QUICK TO PUSH ASIDE

TAKE ME BACK WHERE THEY’RE STILL WAITING
TAKE ME BACK WHERE MY HEART STILL BEATS
WHERE THEY ALWAYS LEAVE THE LIGHT ON
AND THE DOOR IS OPEN TO ME

TAKE ME BACK WHERE THEY KNOW ME BETTER
TAKE ME BACK AWAY FROM IT ALL
WHERE THEY’RE ALWAYS THERE TO CATCH ME
NO MATTER HOW FAR I FALL

IF YOU SEE ME AND I’M BROKEN
PLEASE HELP ME GET BACK HOME
I’M NOT AS STRONG AS I WAS HOPING
NOT ENOUGH ON MY OWN

TAKE ME BACK WHERE THEY’RE STILL WAITING
TAKE ME BACK WHERE MY HEART STILL BEATS
WHERE THEY ALWAYS LEAVE THE LIGHT ON
AND THE DOOR IS OPEN TO ME

TAKE ME BACK WHERE THEY KNOW ME BETTER
TAKE ME BACK AWAY FROM IT ALL
WHERE THEY ALWAYS ARE THERE TO CATCH ME
NO MATTER HOW FAR I FALL
