BACK TO YOU

It's a long way to paradise
When you're standing by the roadside
And the lights out in the distance
Are an ever-fading guide
Well I used to think I'd find my way
But it was all a waste of time
Cause when you’re standing in the shadow
You lose your place in time

I see you standing at the corner
Lighting up your smoke
And your voice cuts through the darkness
For the life you'll never know
And as I make my way through the junction line
At Highway 69
See me staring out the window
Looking for the signs
That take me back to you
So I won't forget you


As I search my way through the night
For this child I left behind
Standing at the old steel bridge
When we were only nine
I can hear the fading whistle
As the cars move down the track
And the moon shards all around us
The light it takes me back
Driving through this town
I feel you all around

When I hear the train and she's calling
And her light upon your hair
And the cold steel line before us
We were all alone out there
As her light shone through the blackness
Is how you left me standing there

So if you think I might forget you
When the dark finds your despair
I will hear the fading whistle
And the sound that took us there
What could ever match the wonder
Of how a life could be stripped so bare
It's a solemn harsh reminder
But I know that you're in her care
And if I look I'll find you there
On that train somewhere

Ooooo...
