lyrics

I follow in your footsteps
a thousand miles behind
I’ve been chasing you for so long
I can’t remember why

but I grip your picture tightly
so I don’t get swept away
no star will ever shine as brightly
as you do every day

and I waded through the blood
for to find where you had gone
it was just as bad as Shiloh
as bad as Babylon

roll on, roll on

now in every bedroom window
I see your silhouette
and though the wind blows hard against me
it hasn’t slowed me yet

no matter how I limp along
I’ll still hold on to you
like a lie I’ve told so many times
I think it might be true
