lyrics

Nothing Comes Close

My sister Biddy came by today
talking what she's talking lately
wondering if she'll go or if she'll stay
and so much crying about the babies

Oh my little sister I'm troubled too
you know I've been down with sorrow 
but it feels like things with Frank are true
it's got me thinking about tomorrows  

You know they'll keep being on out there mustering
and we'll keep toiling under
I look out across the rise for him
and my ears strain for hooves like thunder, like they’re straining now

The way I've sailed me out to sea
gone n swept myself right off my feet
everything else you can have it back
Oh nothing comes close to me and my Frank

Of course I know he's a wild one
course I know the troubles he's under
but in his arms a light lets in
a flood of hope and wonder 

They're flashing eyes, it's a wicked grin
and the way he says so sweetly 
the things I love to hear him say
you know I think i'm gone completely, yeah I’m a goner now

The way I've sailed me out to sea
gone n swept myself right off my feet
everything else you can take it back
Oh nothing comes close to me and my Frank

I wonder how long it could stay this way
and what of you and Jim and Henry
Biddy, Frank's been talking about far away
talking just me and my Frankie

It's a rough scrub it's a rocky soil 
that we keep toiling daily
one of the days we might get away
one of these days just maybe
