High and low dear
Up and down
Don’t confuse what I go through dear
‘Cause it’s coming ‘round
For another round dear
And I don’t know if I’ll be back

Tucked away is a homemade valentine
You made me last time
Reached in my mind
Put me on the road back home

But it’s a waterfall
Of hopelessness
And I can’t promise I’ll resist

Last night I held you in my arms
Felt you slip away
Felt a terror rise up inside of me
Prayed God, let me stay

Well I’m just an old man
And I can’t believe
All the times you waited for me
Maybe someday
We’ll live with no fear
And I’ll love you like I should dear

Tucked away, is a homemade valentine
You made me last time
