Walking Each Other Home

 

The fall comes quick in September

When the leaves and the rivers go dry

I take night trails  and remember

When you were by my side

 

The dogs are both out here with me

They’re old and they trip now and then

But they’re happy to be here anyway

Under the moon again

 

And there’s no need to fear the winter at all

When it gets here you won’t be alone

We can hold each other up

When we stumble and fall

We’re just walking each other home

 

When we were younger we took all those chances

And some of us took more than a few

Now I don’t spend my time at the dances

I want to stay here with you

 

The seasons work on your bones

Like the sky, my hair’s turning gray

But together our hearts won’t be weak or alone

I wouldn’t have it any other way

 

And there’s no need to fear the winter at all

When it gets here you won’t be alone

We can hold each other up

When we stumble and fall

We’re just walking each other home
