Lyrics

I'm walking through this desert
My feet are bloody and sore
And it feels like pain is the only thing
That a man is good for
You know I know that I did this to myself
I drove everything I loved away
So now I go to bed with a hunger in my soul at the end of every day
But there's this woman that fills my dreams you see
Almost every night
And I'm hoping that she'll bring me back to the warmth of the light

I'm gonna cling to the light of this love that I'm not letting go
Not letting go this time around
Though the devil he tempt me lord
You know I tell him to pick his tail up
And turn right back around
You know I welcome the sin, I let it sink in
But darling that's when you begin
To take this heart that's black
And make it go back
To the light and the love that you know it lacks
Oh yeah, that you know it lacks

She got auburn hair that glows like fire at the end of a summer's day
And deep green eyes like the beautiful trees in the Florida Everglades
Now I don't know if she's my angel
Guiding me to take me home
Or a demon that's just weighing me down
Cause I'm already too far gone
I don't care either way
If it's wrong or if it's right
I'm gonna walk to the woman if it takes the rest of my life

I'm gonna cling to the light of this love that I'm not letting go
Not letting go this time around
Though the devil he tempt me lord
You know I tell him to pick his tail up
And turn right back around
You know I welcome the sin, I let it sink in
But darling that's when you begin
To take this heart that's black
And make it go back
To the light and the love that you know it lacks
Oh yeah, that you know it lacks
Now, now, now, now, won't ya take me back

I'm gonna find her
If it takes me the rest of my days
I'll keep a truckin', through the sun and the rain
Cause she's the only light, that I've ever seen
If I don't find her I'll go blind eventually

I'm gonna cling to the light of this love that I'm not letting go
Not letting go this time around
Though the devil he tempt me lord
You know I tell him to pick his shit up
And turn right back around
You know I welcome the sin, I let it sink in
But darling that's when you begin
To take this heart that's black
And make it go back
To the light and the love that you know it lacks
Oh yeah, that you know it lacks
Now, now, now, now, yeah

Now save me, save me ,save me, save me, save me, save me, save me yeah now
