Good Fortune

This song is by Joe Henry and appears on the album Short Man's Room (1992).

I will come back for my things
Then I'll go the way I came
Back down your crooked steps two at a time;
And to the morning sun
I will call as I run
As if it waited for me now to shine.

This is my good fortune now at last
This is all I never knew to ask of you -
To leave me with no love I might return.

I know where I could go
And work awhile, you never know
The change might be enough to set me free;
I could leave tonight
And discover I was right
But now freer than I ever chose to be.

This is my good fortune now at last
This is all I never knew to ask of you -
To leave me with no love I might return.

I climb right in beside
The first offer of a ride
That's warmer than all that I leave behind;
I shake my collar free
And hold myself against my knee
And pray tonight's the peaceful, dreamless kind.

This is my good fortune now at last
This is all I never knew to ask of you -
To leave me with no love I might return.
This is my good fortune I'll love.
