leah lyrics – bruce springsteen

i wanna build me a house, on higher ground
i wanna find me a world, where love’s the only sound
high above this road, filled with shadow and doubt
i want to shoulder my load, and figure it all out
with leah

i walk this road, with a hammer and a fiery lantern
with this hand i’ve built, and with this i’ve burned
i wanna live in the same house, beneath the same roof
sleep in the same bed, search for the same proof
as leah

i got somethin’ in my heart, i been waitin’ to give
i got a life i wanna start, one i been waitin’ to live
no more waitin’, tonight i feel the light i say the prayer
i open the door, i climb the stairs…
