Love You Again
written by John Hiatt

I was speeding through the dark
I didn’t know how far
It can all run away with you sometimes in an empty box car
You were trying to tell me something
I wasn’t listening to you
There was nothing but confusion
Every time that train come blowin’ through

Then you wrote me in a letter
I don’t how your courage came
You told me what you wanted
Every word in tears and flame
How you loved me more than ever
In spite of all the hurt inside
And it cracked my heart wide open
‘Til there was no place left to hide

And I want to thank you babe
For letting me back in
I want to thank you
For asking me to love you again
I want to thank you babe
For letting me back in
I want to thank you
For asking me to love you again

I’d forgotten how to be patient
I’d forgotten how to caress
I’d forgotten how to ask for help
And how to struggle for my best
I was harder than those iron wheels
Rollin’ down the track
And every trip I took I never looked
To getting any feelin’ back

And I want to thank you babe
For letting me back in
I want to thank you
For asking me to love you again
I want to thank you babe
For letting me back in
I want to thank you

For asking me to love you again
Then you met me at the station
With a promise and a kiss
You said my love for you will always be true
But you must remember this
Respect me and protect me
But don’t expect me not to fall
And I will do the same for you
Until the final call

And I want to thank you babe
For letting me back in
I want to thank you
For asking me to love you again
I want to thank you babe
For letting me back in
I want to thank you
For asking me to love you again

Thank you baby
For letting me back in
I want to thank you
For asking me to love you again
