lyrics

somewhere else I am a wife
I work the land, I sleep at night
I closed the curtains on that life
and here I am with my man

and I did some things a nice girl shouldn’t do
I’ve gotta do better, be more like you
for now the dreams will have to do

and I on the opposite shore will be
working on this one life patiently
and I on the opposite shore will be
working on this one life patiently

maybe I will never return
oh what if I never return
to my mother and father seeing the ghosts in the house

and they never hear lyrics of the songs
they make up the words as they sing along
they’ve got 3 daughters on 3 continents
yeah my sisters are much too far

I like living here but I’d like to be where they are
I like living here but I’d like to be where they are

and I on the opposite shore will be
working on this one life patiently
and I on the opposite shore will be
working on this one life patiently
