Across the sea By the Tennessee skyline They told me I'd find my hopes and my dreams But I'd long to be In the bed of my true love Back where I came from She's waiting for me So I'll make my way Through long winding country roads But my heart still beats For my home and my English rose I told my dad On the phone it's amazing From the street to the craziest places I've seen But I'd long to be In the arms of my true love Like he loves my mother He understands me I spend my days Just travelling and playing shows But my heart still beats For my home and my English rose I met a man In the bar down in Memphis He told me he went there to follow his dreams He told me "son You know I lost my true love For the same exact reason that you crossed the sea" And I found truth In people I barely know But my heart still beats For my home and my English rose Oh, my heart still beats For my home and my English rose Oh, my heart still beats For my home and my English rose
