Story

This is a sneak preview track from my upcoming second album. Liking how it's going but seems to have had a little bit of a rough ride in the uploading..(Not included in Songs from the Talking House)

Lyrics

Miles and miles of corn; thunder painted sky

She rolls into the morning, on that ribbon she will ride

She's come in from the coast, another love gone bad

But this one hurts the most, more than any that she's had

Now she feels the gravity of the highway, the highway...

 

The sky feels like home; her sister is the wind

Her mother, father, brother, stars and planets, all her kin

She took to walking far when her thoughts got rough

She walked four hundred miles, still it wasn't far enough

Now she hears it calling, the highway, the highway...

 

For now the road will do until she learns to fly

Until she meets her family and maker in the sky

While she's here on earth, you want to hold her fast

You know you're bound to lose her and she'll slip beyond your grasp

There's no use in fighting the highway, the highway...
