The Avett Brothers – I Go To My Heart lyrics

What do I get when I find out I am nothing?
Who am I without my name?
How do I stop this emptiness from growing?
The dumb instructions coming from my brain

I go to my heart or my knees
Begging “Take me, darling, please”
I will follow you
I promise I have changed
I’ve been gone for years, I know
But I am back for good to show
I will never stray from you like that again

What do I do when my body lets me down?
Who am I without dark hair and a pair of working hands?
How do I stop this outro that I’m headed for?
Where do I turn when I can’t take it anymore?

I go to my heart or my knees
Begging “Take me, darling, please”
I will follow you
I promise I have changed
I’ve been gone for years, I know
But I am back for good to show
That I will never stray from you like that again
No, I will never stray from you like that again
