I go back there, to the city,
Full of hopes and fears,
Through smoke filled arms
I go back there, oh to see her,
After phone calls of "Baby be here tonight"
And she asks me, she asks me to understand
And she's busy in her safe array of plans
She knows I'm weary but she won't let go of my hand,
Said sacrifice ain't nothing, nothing if you can't
Oh, sacrifice ain't nothing, nothing if you can't
In the background, oh this fever;
Something stronger, something deeper than words
In the background, something wholesome,
Take a look inside; oh see what you've done
So I guess the questions from her mouth
She tries on some garments
She wipes the tears from her eyes
Says I need you, I need you here to stay
Over the mountains, we're solid 'till I stumble and I pray.
Says how, how can I ever repay you?
And she leans over heels; turns oh away.
Oh and how can I, how can I,
How can I give you more?
Oh, when all of me, all of me,
All of won't hold on
Yeah and how can I, how can I,
How can I give more?
When my hands are tired from the stones;
When my legs don't want to walk this alone anymore
