Look homeward, angel
Upon the one you might have been
Had you listened to the others
Tried to warn you ‘bout the ways The River bends
They say you should have known better
Oh, but you knew enough to know
You had to dive on in
Look homeward, angel
You may never go back again

Your mama said to find a good man
And build a life behind a wall of bricks
You used to stack ‘em up with one hand
Done some living, girl, since 1996
You still remember all the slow boys
Gave their best for the fast times they were in
With the morning sun, your Davy did come
On a whistling wind

We met when we were almost older
Than we ever thought we’d live to be
And how we laughed about the hard times
About the things when, as children, we believed
So, let’s forget about years lost
To low-heeled shoes and beds of leaf
We come from a line of leaving behind
Loving more than we keep
