My heart it aches, and my soul is sinking
Down into a well, filled with nothing but myself
And that ain’t no place to be
For a man that’s dying
Cause if my days are numbered, I don’t want to spend them on myself

So take my hand
Don’t leave me lonely
Guide me out
Into the light
Cause I don’t want a life like this.

Well my family tree is full but broken
And their stories burn, down deep into my soul
And then come out in lines, all on my forehead
And when I see them there
I know that I can’t make it on my own.

So take my hand
And don’t be lonely
Guide me out
Into the light
Cause I’m not made to be alone.


from The Hard Rains, released December 29, 2011
