Chapter Text

There’s a place I knew where the honeysuckle grew
Pecans swayed and the windchime danced
I tangled my hands in your soft hair
And never found a second chance

We grow strange and lonely
Down these red dirt road
With hearts gone hollow 'n' souls sunk in
We grow strange and lonely
‘Neath the longleaf pine
Waitin’ 'n' waitin’ for love to walk in

There’s a night I know where the moonlight shone
Hand 'n' hand with wind whistlin' the wiregrass
Heard the cricket sing, the night owl call
Heard you whisper it couldn’t last

We grow strange and lonely
Down these red dirt road
With hearts gone hollow 'n' souls sunk in
We grow strange and lonely
‘Neath the longleaf pine
Waitin’ 'n' waitin’ for love to walk in

There’s a creek I lay where dark waters swayed
Live oak trembled as lightnin' flashed
And I stared long, and I stared hard
Thinkin' about my weight on that one tall branch

We grow strange and lonely
Down these red dirt road
With hearts gone hollow 'n' souls sunk in
We grow strange and lonely
‘Neath the longleaf pine
Waitin’ 'n' waitin’ for love to walk in
