Calexico – Gift X-change lyrics

You say you're leaving - going back home
Where's your family. Where do you come from
Something's missing in your life. You've felt it all along
Retrace your steps, balance and check where it all went wrong
The spirit is broken. The path is overrun
You can't move forward and now nothing gets done
I hope you find some. In a peace along the way
Whatever it takes I pray you'll make it home on christmas day
In case you don't find what you need when you finally arrive
And your heart is snowed in there's no warmth or light
Take this candle with you and this book of matches as well
As you're climbing the walls there's no answer at all
Except the gift you give yourself
I trust that you'll find some in a peace through times that are rough
What would it take to hear you say the gift you give is love
