On the Highway

Outer reaches come and go and I’m forever grateful
Come and tell me long and slow exactly what I’ll wait for
Better times yeah better times somehow I don’t believe it
Built a house up long ago just to up and leave it

There’s a bright light in the cold dark night so bloom where you’re planted
Still I pray to the summer rain and every heart that’s slanted
Border lines and severed ties and the crickets in the meadow
Form a line and say goodbye to such a lucky fellow

Out on the highway
Like a portrait in the rain
Out on the highway
We’ll never be the same again

Whittled like a mousetrap queen of the sky oh tell me i’m forgiven
Simulated pilgrims why oh why won’t they take me with them
Sell me something bright and shinier than I can imagine
Parting ways those summer days so happy to have had them

Out on the highway
There’s a storm out in the west
Out on the highway
Oh god I’m such a mess, once again

Out on the highway
It all comes crashing down
Out on the highway
Yeah where would we be now, I don’t know
