Providence

Fighting back the urge to take to flight

As this day turns once again into night

Pack my bags, hitch a trailer to the car

Or leave it all behind save for my guitar

 

Somedays I look around

And feel so goddamn proud of this town

And then there are the moments where I yearn for more

And that’s when I get up and head for the door

 

But how my heart it breaks when I think of leaving you

And you, and you, and you, and you, and you

You’ve rocked my soul like a baby in arms

Cradles me wild with charm, wild with charm

 

So I’ll quit the bottle, you’ll quit the dice

Maybe we’ll meet back here some beautiful night

I might remember and you might forget

But the simplicity of things will remind us of it, of it

 

Oh the feeling of the wind in my hair

Comes from travelling over yonder there

Aching for that light in my life

Come for me please this precious night

 

Despite this bitter ache in the bottom of my soul

I can’t seem to get up and take control

For that would mean leaving all of this behind

This town, these people, all loves of mine

 

But how my heart it breaks when I think of leaving you

And you, and you, and you, and you, and you

You’ve rocked my soul like a baby in arms

Cradles me wild with charm, wild with charm

 

So I’ll quit the bottle, you’ll quit the dice

Maybe we’ll meet back here some beautiful night

I might not remember and you might not forget

But the simplicity of things will remind us of it, of it

So I’ll go tell the mountains, you go tell the sea

All of these things so beautifully

Loving me like never before

Making this whole wide world crazy wanting more, wanting more
