One night in Iowa
He and I in a borrowed car
Went driving in the summer
Promises in every star
Out in the distance
I could hear some people laughing
I felt my heart beat back
A weekend's worth of sadness

There was a farmhouse
That had long since been deserted
We stopped and carved our hearts
Into the wooden surface
We thought just for an instant
We could see the future
And we thought for once we knew
What really was important

Coming up close
Everything sounds like welcome home
Come home
And oh, by the way
Don't you know that I could make
A dream that's barely half-awake come true
I wanted to say
But anything I could have said
I felt somehow that you already knew

We got back in the car
And listened to a Dylan tape
We drove around the fields
Until it started getting late
And I went back to
My hotel room on the highway
And he just got back
In his car and drove away

Coming up close
Everything sounds like welcome home
Come home
And oh, by the way
Don't you know that I could make
A dream that's barely half-awake come true
I wanted to say
But anything I could have said
I felt somehow that you already knew

Coming up close
Everything sounds like welcome home
Come home
Coming up close
Everything sounds like welcome home
Come home
Come on home
