lyrics

So I crawled over the places I have been
And in the traces of the world I found my friends

And the continent was bursting at the seams
So like my heart at first I thought it was a dream

I’ve felt this country burn like coals
Underneath my fingernails
By God it feels like home

And it’s real and it feels you
And it comes and goes
Like I come and go
And the feeling grows
And I’ll leave
And I’ll breathe
What I’m feeling I just don’t know

I was standing by myself and I had this thought
That I’m like everyone who ever stood upon this spot

I was thinking about the sidewalk
I was thinking about the paths that must have crossed
Right on this very block

And would that we could ever know
A million hearts pass by and there they go

And it’s real and it feels you
And it comes and goes
Like I come and go
And the feeling grows
And I’ll leave
And I’ll breathe
What I’m feeling I just don’t know
