Could you give your restless heart away
To a home and a man who’s bound to stay?
Could you be happy if tonight became a year?
And that year a lifetime beside me right here?

Or could I leave the valley and the stream
And go away with you to someplace I find strange?
Oh, I’d go with you if you asked me to go.
But you know better that to ask a homebody to roam.

So may your ship guide you safely through the storm.
And may you one day return to this old familiar shore.
I’ll be waiting where the water writes in rhymes
And repeats them softly to the laurel, the oak, and pine.
