lyrics

she fell out of the blue like rain rolling through
over dusty fields in my mind
and the black seeds grew into colors I knew
would light up the end of the line
her love dawned on me like sunrise
soothing my dull aching bones
but I’ve seen love burn in to wildfire
and burn out like ashes in the stones

she set down my bags, dusted my jeans
and she pulled at my strings ‘til I burst at the seams
by the roadside gravel I fell unravelled
in the arms of the girl of my dreams
she drew me to daylight, brightened the corners
i forgot about all of my losses
but all I had to give her were wildflowers
i’d stolen from roadside crosses

and said if we go down baby lets go down burning slow
if you could love me maybe then love me baby slow
i wanna love you like crazy but I’ve seen enough now to know
too much too soon will lead us to ruin
and leave us with nowhere to go

going down the only road I know
take me with you baby where you go
we could leave this old road for the trees
i’ll put a mark in the gravel to know how far I travelled
and return here should you ever leave

but if we go down baby lets go down burning slow
if you could love me maybe then love me baby slow
i wanna love you like crazy but I’ve seen enough now to know
too much too soon will lead us to ruin
and leave us with nowhere to go
