lyrics

When we woke to greet the early morning,
We did not intend to feel this good,
A long night of drinking in New Orleans,
It feels good to leave our neighborhood

Everyone seems nice here, I wonder if they'd care,
If I stayed forever, and dragged in my despair

O, but I would take your hand if you are reaching out to me,
I would take your hand if you are reaching out to me

Fill the car with presents for our families,
Refrigerator magnets and snow globes,
But we were having trouble just imagining,
How we would feel when we made it back home,

'Cause everyone seems sad there, they've got the small town blues,
The air all feels recycled, the brand names all feel new

O, but I would take your hand if you are reaching out to me,
I would take your hand if you are reaching out to me

When we wrote our names next to the ocean,
We knew that they'd be wiped out by the tide,
But we would not let ourselves be so broken,
'Cause we would write them again in due time

Everything seems fine here, the wind it blows so wild,
Everyone's got problems, and I'm working on mine

O, but I would take your hand if you are reaching out to me,
I would take your hand if you are reaching out to me
And I'd be Whistling Dixie like a petrel on the sea,
I would take your hand if you are reaching out to me
