lyrics

Passing through Brownsfield, western Texas
Stopping for the night in Santa Fe
Something 'bout the moonlight in the desert
Can cut right through your life so many ways
By the time I reach the waters of the Northwest
I'll let the rain come wash these tears away

Gonna be a long lonely winter
Where the sun don't shine or light the day
And you keep on pretending
That there's nothing standing in your way

They call this road the Million Dollar Highway
The mountains there will take your breath away
You're daydreaming 'bout a waitress in Durango
And the smile that she gave you as she waved
So you drive on through the night to get to Salt Lake
Where the sunrise can't break through the frozen haze

Well, I'm thinking 'bout the time we spent in Austin
Running through the reasons I should've stayed
But lonely is a feeling so familiar
And all my life I've carried 'round its weight
The snowfall of Snoqualmie hits my windshield
And the echoes of your love just fade away
