Carry You Back Home
written by John Hiatt

Well, I donít need a reason that
I find your love so pleasiní
I know you can carry me back home
Been out in the wilderness
I could use a little tenderness
Baby I know you can carry me back home

And I give good as I get
This is a night you will never forget
So Iím not telliní, Iím askiní you
Abandon all known points of view
Honey let me carry you back home

Iíve been sailiní a ship of fools
Past steel-eyed buildings, glass swimming pools
Baby you can carry me back home
They all said the earth was flat
But I think I can live with that
Baby you can carry me back home

Trust, thatís a word that we know
But how much does it take to let go
I would give my life for you
Do anything to pull you through
Honey let me carry you back home

And your love lingers on in my mind
Well after the fact of any moment sublime

So Iím not telliní, Iím askiní you
Abandon all old points of view
And honey let me carry you back home

So Iím not telliní, Iím askiní you
Abandon all known points of view
Honey, let me carry you back home
