​Hollow As A Bone (Revisited)

This song is by Cowboy Junkies and appears on the live album Waltz Across America (2000).

She hugged his head so hard to her heart
It made her gasp for air.
If this was not the way Love felt
Then for love she did not care.
I want to run beside a moving train
Yelling farewells in the rain.
The tears will be bittersweet,
'Cause I know I'll see him again.

If I lost you now,
I would feel as hollow as a bone.

He could not help but hang his eyes
Her beauty held him so.
If this was not a state of Grace
Then Grace he'd never know.
I want to yell farewell from a crowded pier
Just me and a thousand good-byes.
The tears will be bittersweet,
'Cause soon she'll be back my side.

If I lost you now,
I would feel as hollow as a bone.

You won't lose me, he replied,
Together our lives have been sewn.
If I lost you now,
I would feel as hollow as a bone.
We will kiss goodnight under a starlit sky
Whisper oaths at a lumbering moon,
Dream sweet dreams before the morning comes
And serves us the dawn in our room.

If I lost you now,
I would feel as hollow as a bone.
