It took a thousand words to tell me what you tried so hard to say,
But it finally got said.
You said it broke my heart to hold her, and it breaks my heart to leave,
and it's not over yet.
'Cause I just gotta be on my way. I really have to go.
And as I turned around to let her know,
She gripped me with her tears,
And she won't let go.

Chorus:
Lupe, sail away into another dream. Where your mother holds you when you cry,
And you don't have to depend on a stranger like me.
please don't wake up 'till I've left you
And I walk right out that door.
'Cause I can't stand to hold you anymore.

When I finally made the distance that calms my aching heart,
and convinces me I'm fine.
I watch her lips form those letters and those letters form my name,
And it puts me on the line.
I had to drop everything and run.
I couldn't stay away on my own.
That's why I asked you to be the one to bring me back home.
Can I just got home

Chorus

When I got back on the bus I heard those old familiar sounds,
And I just tried to block them out.
I just could not excape the visions of that child's broken hopes,
And I just turned myself to doubt.
'Cause I just had to be on my way.
I really had to go. and as I turned around to let you know,
I shared in her tears. And I tried to let go.
