about

Written on an old 1930s Mandolin

lyrics

With new eyes I saw you step into my life
And if I dared to ask you: "who am I?"
You're say: "Baby, if I told ya, and I never tell a lie
You would never be able to sleep again."

'Cause you are my home, it doesn't matter where I go
You show me myself when I feel like I don't have the right to know
From my struggle I don't have a thing to show, and you forgive me.

'Neath new skies I've wandered following the signs
But my time I've squandered. Didn't know which path was mine
In the end I've found out so much more about you than I did myself

'Cause you are my home, it doesn't matter where I go
You show me myself when I feel like I don't have the right to know
From my struggle I don't have a thing to show, and you forgive me.

I heard your footsteps echo as I followed you out of my life
I just want you to know that I gave it a good try
And if I didn't find all that I was looking for
Well I got to grow old with you instead

'Cause you are my home, it doesn't matter where I go
You show me myself when I feel like I don't have the right to know
From my struggle I don't have a thing to show, and you forgive me.
