walking home lyrics – blindside

please just take one step closer
for it is me who hasn’t let you keep me warm
once marked my heart, each letter with pride
once marked my heart, the name of the storm
break my heart again and i’ll hold you close
i’ll break in parts again so you can hold me close

every word is an understatement
and every exaggeration is true
for this is walking home

so this is just the beginning all over again
so this is just what keeps me alive
so it says you died and we still hated you
so it says you died to keep us alive

break out hearts again and we’ll hold you close
i’ll break in parts again so you can hold me close

every word is an understatement
and every exaggeration is true
for this is walking home
i’ll try this time to remember
every exaggeration is true

can a revolution be at hand
just be walking home?
this is walking home now
love can crush the hardest stone
and god i am one
this is walking home now
i’ll always remember
you gave a little bit of home (called peace)
to hold close to heart, this is longing home now
and yes, i’m still longing to get there, still longing

(still they ask me)
how can a man love someone so much?
he hasn’t yet seen
how can a man love a place so much
he hasn’t yet seen
