Come To My Window (Live)

Would you like some awesomeness for Christmas Eve?  I was going to post a lovely Christmas song, but I got sidetracked by this one and it’s too good not to share.  So, we have a window instead of a chimney :).  Here’s Dolly Parton and Melissa Etheridge performing Come To My Window.  If you recognize the other musicians do let me know!

Original lyrics and credits, below.  Enjoy!

Come to my window
Crawl inside
Wait by the light of the moon
Come to my window
I’ll be home soon

I would dial the numbers
Just to listen to your breath
I would stand inside my hell
And hold the hand of death
You don’t know how far I’d go
To ease this precious ache

You don’t know how much I’d give
Or how much I can take
Just to reach you
Just to reach you
Oh to reach you

Come to my window
Crawl inside
Wait by the light of the moon
Come to my window
I’ll be home soon

Keeping my eyes open
I cannot afford to sleep
Giving away promises
I know that I can’t keep
Nothing fills the blackness
That has seeped into my chest

I need you in my blood
I am forsaking all the rest
Just to reach you
Just to reach you
Oh to reach you

Come to my window
Crawl inside
Wait by the light of the moon
Come to my window
I’ll be home soon

I don’t care what they think
I don’t care what they say
What do they know about this love
Anyway

Come, come to my window
I’ll be home, I’ll be home, I’ll be home
I’m coming home

Come to my window
Crawl inside
Wait by the light of the moon
Come to my window
I’ll be home soon
I’ll be home, I’ll be home
I’m coming home

Come to my window
Crawl inside
Wait by the light of the moon
Come to my window
I’ll be home soon
I’ll be home, I’ll be home, I’ll be home
