don't hang your head, love
don't let the winter get you down
I know it's been awhile
since you've had me around
just know two hours
on a northbound train
keep us apart
I've been hardworking
trying to make something that's good
and when it's finished
we can do the things we should
like catch an airplane to a faraway state
and start anew

I know it's right, I know it's true
I know I made it just for you
I know I'm hanging all my hope
on it pulling through

I know it hurts, I know it's hard
to sit out in your backyard
and wonder what the years
will bring us to

don't hang your head, love
don't let your worries make you fear
you're always on my mind
even when you're not right here
just know I hear you
in every song I write
up late at night
when you're 100 miles away
I keep daydreaming
and then counting down the days
'til we lie awake in bed
and make some wild plans
it'll go as planned

the days are tough, the nights are long
each day I'm worried I'll go wrong
but as I say it in this song
your hope can keep me true

I know we're young, I know we're scared
I know all the signs just say beware
but we're taking extra care
to get us through

I know you hope, I know you wait
that's why I'm telling you this straight
in any way at any rate
you can count on me too

so when you sleep and rest your head
remember all the things I've said
about our winding road ahead
That I will travel with you
