This could be the saddest dusk I’ve ever seen
Turn to a miracle, high-alive
My mind is racing, as it always will
My hands tired, my heart aches
I’m half a world away here
And I have sworn to go it alone, hold it along
Haul it along and hold it
Go it alone 'n hold it along
Hoh-oh Hoh-hoh

Hoh, this lonely deeps and holy way
Half a world, half a world away
My shoes are gone, my life spent
I’ve had too much to drink
I didn’t think, I didn’t think of you
I guess that’s all I needed
To go it alone and hold it along
Haul it along and hold it
Blackbirds, backwards, forwards and fall
Hoh-oh Hoh-hoh

Hoh, this lonely world has wasted
Pathetic eyes, high-alive
Blinded eye that turns to see
The storm it came up strong
It shook the trees and blew away our fear
I couldn’t even hear
To go it alone, hold it along
Haul it along and hold it
Go it alone 'n hold it along
Hoh-oh-hoh-hoh

Go it alone and hold it along
Haul it along 'n hold it
Blackbirds, backwards, forwards and fall
Hoh-oh Hoh-hoh

Hoh, this could be the saddest dusk I’ve ever seen
Turn to a miracle, high-alive
My mind is racing, as it always will
My hands tired, my heart aches
I’m half a world away
C-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-old
