Lyrics
Just in a simple conversation
You can hear the feeling change
Down to the sea
And if you need an explanation
I defy you to explain
Why I am so nervous
Please explain to me
Why I can't sleep
I close my eyes to shelter
In the dark I try to hide
If you leave me on my own
I'm worried I could lose my way
In my mind confusion
I see you everywhere
But we don't speak
I try so hard to touch you
But you're always out of reach
If you walked right by
Would I see in it your eye
Would you turn away
Seems to me
I've been a long time
On this road
Has there been a sign
Another way
And I've passed it by
I don't know what it is that drives me on
Gotta keep movin'
Gotta keep movin' on
Bring it on home
Let's bring it on home - your love
Bring it on home
Let's bring it on home your love
Bring it on home
Let's bring it on home your love
Down parallel lines
Don't question faith
Don't answer lies
Tell me why I'm nervous
Please explain to me
Why I can't sleep
Please explain to me
Why you're always out of reach
If the water ran dry
Would I see it in your eye
Would you walk away
It seems to me I've been a long time on this road
And I wonder why
Has there been a sign that points another way
And I've passed it by
I don't know what it is that drives me on
Gotta keep movin'
Gotta keep movin' on
Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love
Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love
Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love
Down parallel lines
Don't question faith
Don't answer lies
You know you gotta keep movin'
Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love
Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love
