From Home Again
..............................................

Walking on the railroad rails
Leaning into one another
Balancing so we won't fail
Into timeless friends and lovers

We're still holding hands
Past the place I quite before
On this high trestle span
The distance down is what
We must ignore

Chorus

Balance is no harder after all
Out across this bridge so tall
Balance is no harder
Its just that you've got farther
Now you've just got farther to fall

Walking on the railroad rails
Out across this deep commitment
I can feel your finger nails
Hanging on to old resentment
And I miss that easy smile
Lately it's a tight-wire frown
But we've come so many miles
We can make it if we don't look down

Chorus

Farther to fall
Looking all the way down
Maybe you'll drown in it all

But you like to walk this rail for two
As long as words like "wife" aren't said
But something comes over you
When you see that span of life ahead

Now you make your choice
Will you turn around and walk away
The tremble in your voice
You turn to me, smile and say
Hey!

Chorus
