Won't Leave You Waiting

from Homecoming by The Ragged Flags



Trying to explain what you mean to me
Is an object lesson in futility
While I’m wandering without a trace
That I’ve ever been

But lying on the bank by the riverside
On the day you sailed away on the evening tide
Was a fire in your eyes and I did not belong
And all the crying people they sang along

I’ve been gone for a long, long time
But I’m coming back home again
And I know that you’re better than me
But you better not find a friend, and
I know you’ve been waiting for me
On the other side of the shore
But I won’t leave you waiting anymore

So I think about you while I’m walking the road
And the noonday sun burns me to the bone
All the lessons that I had to learn
Were hard as stone

But lying out under the shining moon
I know the road is gonna rise up to meet me soon
And the shadow that I trail behind belongs to you
And all the crying people they know it too

Well nothing seems to change around this old place
And I wonder how I’ll feel when I see your face
There’s a figure waiting by the door
I’m walking through

But lying to you now in your bed at night
I know I’m gonna be gone
Come the morning light
But I tell you that I’m gonna stay
I’ll stay with you
But all the crying people they know the truth
Hey now!
