lyrics

Pt. 1

the wind gently wanders through the pines
and on my lips I can taste the ocean
the sun has been a warm, welcome friend
and it comforts me to know she's watching you

I know the road you travel on
has claimed its own but you're too strong, baby
just think of me when you feel broken
or your children’s laughter when you hold them
come home

the sky last night grew restless
a summer rain refreshed us
and your son everyday looks more like you
and everyday I miss you more and more

I know the road you travel on
has claimed its own but you're too strong, baby
just think of me when you feel broken
or your children’s laughter when you hold them
come home


Pt. 2

the wind whips like an ocean
I feel like I could drown
my lips are crackin’ open
my hands feel leather bound

but tell her we’re gonna make it

the endless sky grew angry
and rained daggers for six days
the wagon train was stranded
in two feet of molten clay

but tell her we’re gonna make it

I’ve been through hell and Mexico
lost twenty head in the Rio Grande
disasters manifested
but I still feel far from bested
I've got a girl with an angel’s soul
an artist’s mind and an endless love
and I swear to the stars above
I ain’t gonna stop until I get home

the mountains stood like sentries
against a desert grave
the sun hung like a question
will I ever make it home?
the wind whips like an ocean
and I feel like I could drown
