THE HEART OF YOU

A part of me is a hobo, on a freight train heading west
A part of me is a sinner waiting to be confessed
And part of me is a prisoner placed under house arrest
Without you

A part of me wanders in the desert, parched, and dazed by the heat and sun
A part of me is a wanted man, I’m in disguise and on the run
And a part of me has been tried and sentenced, knows his days are almost done
Without you

And these parts of me are yearning to find a highway home
To the heart of you
In the heart of me
In the heart of you

A part of me mans up to fight but knows his fate is already sealed
A part of me is a wounded knight, splintered sword, and broken shield
And a part of me has lost his sight and knows it can’t be healed
Without you

And these parts of me are yearning to find a highway home
To the heart of you
In the heart of me
In the heart of you

A part of me is a ship-wrecked sailor, washed ashore, half-dead, half- drowned
A part of me is being held to ransom, in a darkened room, chained and bound
And a part of me stands still in a forest, lost and waiting to be found
By you

And these parts of me are yearning to find a highway home
To the heart of you
In the heart of me
In the heart of you
