I felt it my bones I saw it too The kind of lovin’ that you Throw away just a little bit too soon I was so young And just too tamed I bit my tongue in fear Of losing everything, including you Well, I lost you too I felt just a little out of place Like everyone else just shouldn’t stay 'Til she came in and Stole my heart away Then you showed me “Passenger Seat” by Death Cab and all my worries in line Just stepped to the side From that moment on I knew you’d stay Then we broke into your parent’s house The one by the river that we looked down As the rain fell all around You led me down the railroad Close by where you lived in your first home I want to go home Where you go, Might just be where I go Where you go, I go I felt it in my bones I saw it too

What’s a man Without his land? You got both legs but Nowhere to stand I made a plan To head for sand I’m learning now That life has other plans I’m looking for An open door I’ve been searching for Something worth fighting for But if I gave it all Would I leave at all? Or would I throw it all away To stay next fall So, just stay Wait for me Another late night drive Down the 205 And the airport lights Are a beautiful sight Like the night we walked And threw rocks at the docks Off the bridge down on by The Boones Ferry Climb You just stayed And waited for a minute So you just stayed And waited for a minute Yeah, my old man Did all he could To raise me up Like a church boy should But what’s the point To leave at night If I’ll be back By morning light? So I just stayed And waited for a minute So I just stayed And waited for a minute So we just stayed And waited for a minute (Stay) So we just stayed And waited for a minute (Stay) So we just stayed Just stayed And waited for a moment (Stay) So we just stayed Just stayed And waited for a moment

Hold me just like you did When you found me alone in my head My wooden legs are worn down I felt the ground and the rain it found Hold me just like you did On the back of the street where we lived Your highway's wrapped up in ivy Your mind, it bleeds your tumbling weeds Darling, don't forget me I told you it's harder to see When your branches shadow your leaves And I told you I don't have anywhere to go I don't have anymore to grow These days are getting old Darling, don't forget me when I don't come back

The summers here must have got you down Because you never really come around I’ll be waiting just around the bay ‘cause You’ll be here someday I’ve wrote about a thousand lines Just to remember half the time you were here And you may not be now but You’ll be here someday Someday, some way Rome around all across the town Find a man that’ll get on down on his knee But soon you’ll see that You’ll be here someday Sit around in your wedding gown While you try to forget the sounds From every summer that you’d run away, 'cause You’ll be here someday And you’ll be here to stay Someday, some way You leaving was so frustrating But some things must change And even though you ran away To myself I'll say, You'll be here someday You were always just a tad bit wild The kind of woman that’d bare my child It didn’t matter It was safe to say that You’ll be here someday Growing up was a big mistake The kind of lovin’ that you throw away I could lie, say, “I’m fine”, but we both know that I will count the days ‘cause You’ll be here someday

West Virginia, don't mind me when I say I am going away for good Moving away like I should Boy, if I could West Virginia, I might say I'm fine But I know I am losing my mind One day I'm gonna walk Right out these roots That hold me down right here Right out of these roots That hold me down right here West Virginia, don't mind me when I flee to the town by the sea for good Step out of these roots like I should Boy, if I could West Virginia, why don't you settle and stay? Cause you all left me anyway One day I'm gonna walk Why do you root yourself When you're leaving the ground? Why do you root yourself When you're leaving this town? Why do you root yourself When you're leaving the ground? Why do you root yourself When you're leaving the ground?
