Cowboy Junkies — Hollow As A Bone lyrics

She hugged his head so hard to her heart
It made her gasp for air
If this was not the way love felt
Then for love she did not care
I want to run beside a moving train
Yelling farewells in the rain
The tears will be bittersweet,
'cause I know I'll see him again

If I lost you now,
I would feel as hollow as a bone

He could not help but hang his eyes
Her beauty held him so
If this was not a state of grace
Then grace he'd never know
I want to yell farewell from a crowded pier
Just me and a thousand good-byes
The tears will be bittersweet,
'cause soon she'll be back my side

If I lost you now,
I would feel as hollow as a bone

You won't lose me, he replied,
Together our lives have been sewn
If I lost you now,
I would feel as hollow as a bone
We will kiss goodnight under a starlit sky
Whisper oaths at a lumbering moon
Dream sweet dreams before the morning comes
And serves us the dawn in our room

If I lost you now,
I would feel as hollow as a bone
