Whitehorse – Emerald Isle lyrics

I wait, on the emerald isle,
For you to come and rescue me,
From every step I can't make,
Feet don't you ever break,
Drag me over that line.

Half way around the medicine ball
Is far enough to blow me back
Like you broke the bank
On the ticket worth every damn nickle
Well, you got me that time.

Cause I've been on the road one day too long,
Can't hear the record for another sad song,
Look at all these faces
can't all be wrong
That's a lot of my heart out there.

Did you fly, a million miles for every single one that I ran,
I don't know which of us is crazy,
Oh sweet baby, that's the madness I desire.

And there's a twinkle in the clifted sky,
Been there forever,
And lights the way for the runners,
The jackals and the lovers
And the broken street lights.


So do we keep running through the motions, baby
Knowing that some day is gonna come maybe
When you can't keep your pretty mouth from saying
I wanna come home.

I wait on the emerald isle for you to come and rescue me
