lyrics

Leaving defines me as those tall pines roll behind me
This new city is as cold as stone
The snow is out there falling and the traffic’s out there crawling
And I’m living in this dirty little room

What happens after you flee the disaster
Will you make it or break it on your own
Across the canyon that lies in my heart
Is a new life that is tearing me apart

At night I try to sleep but I can still feel my heart beat
For the place I used to call my home
The men out on the corner ain’t got nothing to prove
The record’s spinning “Walking the floor over you”

What happens after you flee the disaster
Will you make it or break it on your own
Across the canyon that lies in my heart
Is a new life that is tearing me apart

I look back and I see you standing there
Down by Devil Track River where we once lay bare
Your dark brown coat and your eyes of winter green
The only way to be with you now is in dimness of my dreams

What happens after you flee the disaster
Will you make it or break it on your own
Across the canyon that lies in my heart
Is a new life that is tearing me apart
