about

Based loosely on a true story, this song combines the jangly, 12-string Rickenbacker with more soaring electric guitars and an offer to help a loved one.

lyrics

You love like the wind, fall like the rain,

Round and round in circles;

You blank out the past, erase the pain,

In your happy-ever- after dream world.

You’ve been lied to, and baby I know it,

Search and rescue,

I’ll take you in and soothe your weary heart.

You live on the edge, blown off the ledge,

By a wind with no understanding;

Fall through the sky, years flying by,

Just praying for your happy landing.

You’ve been lied to, and darling I know it,

Search and rescue,

I’ll take you in and soothe your weary heart.

Let me take you to a place where there’s sunlight on your face,

You can lose the darkness you’re drinkin’,

Or hold on to your pride, swim against the tide,

But you’re not as tough as you’re thinkin’,

You’re sinkin,’ you’re just sinkin’…

You’ve been lied to, and baby I know it,

Search and rescue,

I’ll take you in and soothe your weary heart.

You’ve been lied to, and darling I know it,

Search and rescue,

I’ll take you in and soothe your weary,

I’ll take you in and soothe your weary,

Just take me in and soothe my weary heart,

Oh, my weary heart.
