lyrics

I want to be a home
where you can rest your weary bones
I want to be a home
where you can set your burdens down

And when you look up at me
and you say, honey,
I love you
I'll just look back at you, and we'll know it's true
it's true for me, for me too

And when we build that fire up, we will sing
and when we build that fire up, we will sing
old time blues songs,
those old time country songs,
and we will know that we are home

I want to be a home
where you can ease your worried mind
baby baby, baby baby
it's not too late to call
it's not too late at all

And when we build that fire up, we will sing
and when we build that fire up, we will sing
old time blues songs,
those old time country songs,
and we will know that we are home

I want to build a home
where we can say what's really true
like I love you and you love me
and there's still some things we're working through

I'd say we are like two ships passing
by in the darkest of nights on an ocean
where the water is cold
and the coast is just out of our sight

And when we build that fire up
way up high in the lighthouse
And when I let you see right
oh right on through me

And when I bring those gifts from that dark water I swim in
that is how, that is how, that is how
that is how you'll know me
that is how, that is how, that is how
how I'll let you in
