Joe Henry – Good Fortune lyrics

I will come back for my things
Then I'll go the way I came
Back down your crooked steps, two at a time
And to the morning sun
I will call as I run
As if it waited for me now to shine

This is my good fortune now at last
This is all I never knew to ask of you
To leave me with no love I might return.

I know where I could go
And work awhile, you never know
The change might be enough to set me free

I could leave tonight
And discover I was right
But now freer than I ever chose to be

This is my good fortune now at last
This is all I never knew to ask of you
To leave me with no love I might return.

I climb right in beside
The first offer of a ride
That's warmer than all that I leave behind
I shake my collar free
And hold myself against my knee
And pray tonight's the peaceful, dreamless kid.

This is my good fortune now at last
This is all I never knew to ask of you
To leave me with no love I might return.
