my love follows you where you go lyrics – alison krauss

“my love follows you where you go”

more wishes than a thousand hearts can count for you
more smiles than a merry-go-round
the sweetest ending to a bed-time story told
my love follows you where you go

more laughter than a kindergarten out to play
one sunday morning song that says it all
more summer than a california beach can hold
my love follows you where you go

future like a promise, your city of gold
stubborn in your bones and jesus in your soul
seeing you stand there, staring at the unknown
i won’t pretend that it’s not killing me
watching you walk away slow

take forgiveness, take a prayer, take the deepest breath
take the answers in your heart
when you wake up and the world is cruel and cold
my love follows you where you go

future like a promise, your city of gold
stubborn in your bones and jesus in your soul
seeing you stand there, staring at the unknown
i won’t pretend that it’s not killing me
watching you walk away slow

more freedom than a field of flowers in the wind
more beauty than a morning after rain
up the steepest hill, a dark and crooked road
my love follows you where you go

future like a promise, your city of gold
stubborn in your bones and jesus in your soul
seeing you stand there, staring at the unknown
i won’t pretend that it’s not killing me
watching you walk away slow
