Gone to Louisiana

I'd give my hand to be with you
I'd give both just to keep you
But you've gone back
Back home to Louisiana
Back to where your world is right now
I know it's all for the best
that it serves some kind of purpose
But still I lay here on my bed
Laying in a pillow full of tears
Oh, I know you'll be back someday
Sure, I know you'll be back
But tell that to my eyes
Because they're crying an ocean for you
And tell that to my nails
For they are ripping up my pillow
Because my heart misses you so
So please, hurry back to see me
And hurry back soon
Because I can't stand another night without you
Another night sleeping in my tears
