Stranded in the Heartland

it’s crying girls and exit signs
cover me up with all my lies
and I’m coming back home to you
but it’s parking lots and jumper cables
and I’ve been trying to make you stable
I guess I’m coming back home to you
oh but somewhere back there I got burned
oh yeah somewhere back there I got turned
against the work of my own hands
against the work of my own hands
against the work of my own hands
and now I’m stranded in the heartland

oh I took 70 to 75
and by the time I came out I was barely alive
but I was coming back home to you
oh I drew a song of a landscape
and all my advantages went to waste
but hey I’m happy to see you
oh but somewhere back there I got burned
oh yeah somewhere back there I got turned
against the work of my own hands
against the work of my own hands
against the work of my own hands
and now I’m stranded in the heartland

oh but somewhere back there I got burned
oh yeah somewhere back there I got turned
against the work of my own hands
against the work of my own hands
against the sound of my own band
and now I’m stranded in the heartland
