Something in My Heart

from by Roger Hoover

lyrics

A wolf on the road and a touch of skin,
blood on the highway and whiskey on my chin.
Years of women and work and all the stories I’ve told
have been taken away, packaged up and sold.

You gave me reason to try.
You gave me reason to try.
There’s something in my heart, babe.
Something in my heart, babe.
Something in my heart, babe, I didn’t think could be found.

I’m a lucky man. Awake from a dream.
The band sings a dirge for all their suffering.

You gave me reason to try.
You gave me reason to try.
There’s something in my heart, babe.
Something in my heart, babe.
Something in my heart, babe, I didn’t think could be found.

Let there be light, let there be morn,
let there be salvation for the heartsick and forlorn.

You gave me reason to try.
You gave me reason to try.
There’s something in my heart, babe.
Something in my heart, babe.
Something in my heart, babe, I didn’t think could be found.
