Sheryl Crow – Abilene lyrics

Can't you see I'm holding your flag
The one that you left on the ground
Well is the world too heavy for you?
And if it makes you feel better, I'll carry it, too
No one's gonna stand in your light
Impressions are easy to fight
But until you turn to me and say
You don't need anyone to carry the weight, I will stay

Bring it on home to me
Isn't it good to be free?

Can't you see I'm wearing your shirt
The one with the heart on the sleeve
Everyone can see you've been hurt
But honey don't give up on me
When you gonna make up your mind?
When you gonna get out of bed?
Well everyday you're gonna find
Broken promises are no worse than words never said

Bring it on home to me
You're always givin' it all away

Then you want someone to come along and save the day
But you make it much too hard

You can bring it home to me
Abilene, oh
Bring it on home to me
Isn't it good to be free?
