Forgive Me, Savannah

Rain came down
I felt a loss for words at all the words that I had found
And Carolina held me like a child
And in the sunlight for the first time since the Spring time 
I was back on Southern ground

95 to 26 was open with the windows 
And the Wild was on the stereo and I
Cut the chords where vocal chords constrain
Us from the notes that we can never ever find

But I drove home

Light came down
And I heard a voice say never lose the sound
We humans have a wandering need as humans are a faulty breed
And Iíve found itís an easy sound to lose

But oh my dear Savannah if your majesty was mine
Weíd never have to feel Septemberís chill or see its sky
Cause Iíve found a place where I can see the stars
Just fine

But I drove home

This southern rain is soothing on my skin
But this soothing southern rain cannot compare
To hearts and strings that pull apart my doubt
Your Jersey lips and Jersey eyes and Jersey hair

So I drove home
