While I drive
Through deer and dusky hills
It's no longer strange the streets all bear your name

The wheels turn
Unknowingly to you
You're not aware the places I take you

Your eyes fade
Like a slowly sinking sun
I forget the contours of your back and face

A mirage
Were you ever really there
A distant light I never seem to reach

A song plays
And once again I'm gone
The rising road to nowhere meets my soles

The wolf cries
I pretend we share the moon
It chases me, I chase you down the road
