Walkabouts

Walkabouts - Desert Skies

rate me

Blacklight fades

Blacklight fades

Headlights switched off

Headlights switched off

The engine burns

The engine burns

As we're rollin' to a stop

As we're rollin' to a stop

Let's get out here

Let's get out here

Lie down in the middle of road

Lie down in the middle of road

Ain't no cars comin'

Ain't no cars comin'

Only stars

Only stars

And stars alone

And stars alone

The city at our backs

The city at our backs

Did you really think that it would last?

Did you really think that it would last?

Heaven's trace

Heaven's trace

A trail of starlight gone

A trail of starlight gone

The city best forgotten

The city best forgotten

Did the wind hit you in the eye?

Did the wind hit you in the eye?

Or were you just about to cry?

Or were you just about to cry?

Desert skies......

Desert skies......

This ain't the place to turn around

This ain't the place to turn around

Never even said goodbye

Never even said goodbye

Desert skies......

Desert skies......

A day so hot it seemed

A day so hot it seemed

Like the rocks could sing

Like the rocks could sing

The sky so flat it seemed there was

The sky so flat it seemed there was

Nothin' in the wings

Nothin' in the wings

Scar on your lip

Scar on your lip

A story far too long to tell

A story far too long to tell

The story best forgotten

The story best forgotten

Our party in hell's been cancelled

Our party in hell's been cancelled

Due to fire and thick smoke

Due to fire and thick smoke

Torched up by it's own success

Torched up by it's own success

Do ya' wish that we had never spoke?

Do ya' wish that we had never spoke?

Yours and yours alone

Yours and yours alone

Mine everywhere thrown

Mine everywhere thrown

Yours alone

Yours alone

Did the wind hit you in the eye?

Did the wind hit you in the eye?

Or were you just about to cry?

Or were you just about to cry?

Desert skies......

Desert skies......

All the stars are shaped like tears

All the stars are shaped like tears

Tears are satellites

Tears are satellites

Desert skies......

Desert skies......
