Abilene Lyrics

by Sheryl Crow

Can't you see I'm holding your flag
The one that you left on the ground
Well, is the world too heavy for you
And if it makes you feel better, I'll carry it too

'Cause no one's gonna stand in your light
Impressions are easy to fight
But until you turn to me and say
You don't need anyone to carry the weight, I will stay

Abilene
Bring it on home to me
Abilene
Isn't it good to be free

Can't you see I'm wearing your shirt
The one with the heart on the sleeve
Now everyone can see you've been hurt
Oh, but, honey don't give up on me

When you gonna make up your mind
And when you gonna get out of bed
Well, everyday you're gonna find
Broken promises are no worse than words never said

Abilene
Bring it on home to me
Abilene
You're always giving it all away

Then you want someone
To come along and save the day
But you make it much too hard

Abilene
You can bring it home to me
Abilene, oh

Abilene
Bring it on home to me
Abilene
Isn't it good to be free
