i always leave part of my heart in Chicago
with ribbons to hold the pieces in bows
and even when i am there it beats beside me
trying to find me knowing i dare to leave it
behind me when the next wind blows

will it always be this way?
i'm torn the more each time i stray
but it don't feel right to stay
will it always be this way?

cover the miles, pierce the night
level the road, enjoy the ride
cover the miles in clouds and trees
mountains and birds that hang on the breeze
cover the miles with all of your signs
hope comes to life as this road unwinds
cover the miles, become someone else's horizon
