lyrics

I've got a life outside these windows,
and the Camry's out there runnin',
but your embrace, it lasts so long,
it lets me know

and I used to know the stars by name
til I left them for the city,
but the darkest night out in the West
will let me know

[chorus]:
so rings, and rings, the altar bells,
if the priest would be so bold
to speak of its opposite,
he'd say the fear of losing grasp of the past

and if all it took was rustlin' pines
to get my heart to wakin',
then arise and start a fire
for coffee!

I may never see another canyon
beautiful as that one,
but at least I'll save this breathless thing
from mourning

[chorus]

see, I drew my thoughts on highway lines
on a map of northern Texas,
as if to grasp the passing time
and hold right on

when we arrived, a solemn light
still flickered in that valley,
but not til dawn would mountains rise
from shadow

[chorus]

sittin' on a lonely dock
and lookin' out from 'Frisco,
when on it came: the morning fog,
to hang around

and I flew back East, in anxious dream,
starin ' out the window,
as what had been the road ahead
was fading

[chorus]
