"Back to Earth" as written by and Willie Nelson....
I guess my heart had settled back to her
I rode a dream so wild and free for all that dream was worth
But true love is both, a blessing and a curse
Today my heart just settled back to earth

Now I know just how you felt that night so long ago
For the dream for you had ended and you let me know
So I bounced from sky to sky, trying to keep the dream alive
But everything I did just made it worse
Yes, my heart just settled back to earth

Love created songs that I still sing
Love we knew still makes the rafters ring
Tonight I'll sing for everything I'm worth
For all the hearts that's settled back to earth

Songs our love created I still sing
Love we knew still makes the rafters ring
Tonight I'll sing for everything I'm worth
For all the hearts that's settled back to earth

Our song will never have a final verse
Our heart's just finally settled back to earth

    General CommentLyrics read above: Love created songs that I still sing.
    Love we knew still makes the rafters ?red?.

    should be: makes the rafters ring.

    This is a song about going from heavenly exciting love to back to earth's position of "I am not loved by this person anymore." Sad song, beautifully expressed.
