A HEART NEEDS A HOME
Richard Thompson

I know the way that I feel about you
I'm never going to run away
I'm never going to run away

Never knew the way when I lived without you
I'm never going to run away
I'm never going to run away

I came to you when no one could hear me
I'm sick and weary of being alone
Empty streets and hungry places
The world's no place when you're on your own
A heart needs a home

Some people say that I should forget you
But I'm never going to be a fool
I'm never going to be a fool
Better life they say, if I'd never met you
But I'm never going to be a fool
No I'm never going to be a fool

Tongues talk fire and eyes cry rivers
Indian givers, heart of stone
Paper ships and painted faces
The world's no place when you're on your own
A heart needs a home


Here you are Shambles, in thanks for directing me (indirectly) to this wonderful thread! This is one of my all-time favourites, as is Devonside. The words from Devonside that EJ mentioned, always make me shiver. I've obviosly found some kindred spirits here!!
