Nightsong

lyrics

Every night I'll be driving
Till the lights are gone
Chasing the moon down
With the wind in my hair and the radio on
And the needle
You touch to the Nightsong 45
And when you say my name after the last note
Oh, the sound of your voice keeps the feeling inside me alive

So long ago, baby
When you wore my ring
Youth was our promise
I'd teach you to drive if you would teach me to sing
And I sang, and I sang
But I lost you somewhere in the lights
And when I heard my song on the radio
I was driving alone and a little too fast for the night

And you say, where did you go?
I say I don't know
Did you run away?
Were you afraid?
Or have you been here all along,
Circling in time,
Waiting for me to play that old song?

Come out tonight, baby
To the secret place
Fear's just a shadow
If you remember the song will you remember the face?
Ocean Highway
Down below in the blackened sand
There's a rusted out Chevy in the shallows
Look behind the wheel, baby, and you'll understand where I am

But why did you go?
I say, I don't know
Why'd you run away?
Were you afraid?
Or have you been here all along,
Circling in time,
Waiting for me to play your Nightsong?

You're rattling my bones tonight
With the echo of your voice and mine
Love is a lonely road tonight
But ever the sun may hope to rise
