Lyrics

She’s got secrets she won’t reveal
And the ones she tells me
She can’t conceal
You know what love is?
Show me the proof
I carry the lantern
We look for the truth

You make your choices
You lie in your bed
Do me a favour
Forget what I said
We walk together
We walk alone
I’m tired darlin’
Would you carry me home?

Words have no meaning
They spill sometimes
You take home your winnings
You pay for your crimes
Don’t call I’m busy
I’ll get back when I can
Just stay on message
There’s always a plan

She takes her poison
She knows it well
But when she’s past it
No one can tell
She knows what life is
She likes it alone
But one day she’ll ask you
“Will you carry me home?”

Where the hell have you been boy?
Are you half asleep?
One day you’re gonna wake up
And you’re in too deep
“Oh honey I’m wasted
Well you’re not alone”
So I did the lifting
And I carried her home

She’s got secrets she cannot reveal
And the ones she tells me
She cannot conceal
You know what love is?
Show me the proof
We carry the lantern
We look for the truth
We walk together
We walk alone
“Honey I’m tired
Would you carry me home?”
You make your choices
When you’re half asleep
You wake up and wonder
Are you in too deep?

Is that all life is?
This give and take?
Honey you can bend me
But I’ll never break
I recognise the number
So I answer the phone
She said “Honey I’m stranded.
Will you carry me home?”
