about

for AJ

lyrics

reaching with your eyes
over the next state line
the mountains give way
to the prairies over time

the air is thick with rain
forward through the night
singing songs of Texas longing
i'll be there before sunrise

sculpted peaks of
the mountains and the clouds
just passing through
fast as a freight train loaded down

when you trace
the lines of our life
the beginning and the end
they always collide

like broken gold
you're broken open
again, again, again
and the more you know
what the road has taken
the more you're left with in the end

four square inches
in the daily news
there are just some things that
we never get to choose

help me to forget
help me to remember
our bodies always perish
but our spirits, they will live forever

so I dream
what you mean to me
