lyrics

More Miles Ahead of Us


she’s gone out on roads again

those lonesome old one-nighter trips that never end

those high school dreams

playing modern radio records

making all them skinny little baby girls scream



I’m just sitting here counting cars

from one or another wounded junk-sick seaside bars

lonesome as a tree

thinking somewhere between rome and tupelo

one of them she’s singing on might be me



we don’t know

how to slow these wheels of time

we don’t know

how to hide these ancient eyes

darkening lines

come home love

there’s more miles ahead of us than behind.



I hung my hat on this old guitar

we make it out on a friday night on the Via la Mar

my hometown scenes

folks come to dance and watch the dying sun

all the songs we wrote for everyone’s dreams



we don’t know

how to slow these wheels of time

we don’t know

how to hide these ancient eyes

darkening lines

Come home love

while there’s more miles ahead of us than behind.
