Half a Thousand Miles More Rock to Denver (Original)

Drove half the night ’round hills outside of Barstow
Got half a mind to just keep drivin’ on
There’s half a thousand miles more rock to Denver
And a half-baked plan to blow off comin’ home

Spent some time thinking ’bout the situation
How’d we get to be so far undone?
Wrapped up in some transient angst and contemplation
Queryin’ for the truth in the rising sun

Lookin’ for a little divine inspiration
Hoping for some kinda meta cosmic clue
Canyons echoin’ answers with no translation
But all the signs keep pointing back to you

Bid the light through the window
Chase the storm clouds out of your mind, tell me
What you think you’re hoping to find?

With a wish and a whisper willing
Time make everything new
So every single, lonely byway
Blessed highway
Brings me back here to you

Following the path got set before me
Harder than a body should endure
Except for some crazy, phase-y faded memories
Whatever hopes you had you won’t find here no more

Wanting for that soul I know can heal me
Looks at me like I’m the setting sun
The one whose eyes I know can see right through me
Looks on me like I’m some chosen one

Take a look in the rear view mirror
What do you see?
Is it who you thought it’d be?

Stealin’ light from the shadows
Round these hills to carry me through
Now every single, lonely byway
Blessed highway
Brings me back home to you
