"Gale Song" lyrics - THE LUMINEERS

"Gale Song"
(Jeremiah Fraites / Neyla Pekarek / Wesley Schultz)

It's a lonely road
For the tired man
And you can see it in your face
And you'll be home in spring
I can wait till then
I heard you're on the big train

And oh, this too shall pass
This loneliness won't last for long

I wasn't there to take his place
I was ten thousand miles away
So when you hear my voice
When you say my name
May it never give you pain

'Cause I don't wanna go
But it's time to leave
You'll be on my mind, my destiny

And I won't fight in vain
I'll love you just the same, ooh

I couldn't know what's in your mind
But I saw the pictures, you're looking fine
And there was a time when I stood in line
For love, for love, for love
But I let you go, oh
I let you go

And he fell apart
With his broken heart
And this blood, this blood, this blood
Oh, it drains from my skin, it does
