Once I had a true love 'Fore I knew what it had been The kind that people sing of And the kind I'll have again. I thought it would be too rough When I went out on my own And a goodbye to my true love Now she's coming back home. Once we were a wild heart We were second to none But me, you, we could see through All the trophies we had won. We tipped o'er all the towers Walls crashing into dust And behind our broken mortars Was a fortune of us. Hear the crowds cheer your arrival Hear parades cars as they run Hear the angels blow their trumpets And they say you're the one. Closing curtains and a long kiss But the stories not done You take me by the hand And we're starting to run Oh, I wait on every moment They're the best I've ever known For a hello to my true love 'Cause you're coming back home.
