Lyrics

If Home is Where the Heart Is

 

The moon is a sliver, a silver eyelash and the night is sinking down slow

Jesus knows no one believes you in your hometown but there’s no place else I want to go

If home is where the heart is, my home is the starry night sky

If home is where the heart is, I guess I’ll be rambling til the day I die

 

Lillo, she’s a sad one. Burned like a beautiful bonfire. She turned heads without hardly trying

An outlaw, she courted the darkness, said her “I dos”. Now disappearing’s just a slow way of dying

If home is where the heart is, I guess she’s off some ways away

If home is where the heart is, all of my praying would not make her stay

 

In the still of the nighttime this house speaks to me, and I write down the words

Deep in my dreams I hear the voices tell me stories. I wake up singing all that I heard

 

If home is where the heart is, why does my heart keep leaving me?

If home is where the heart is, I guess homesickness feels like home to me

 

La, la, la

La, la, la

La, la, la, la
