Well, yer passed out drunk beside me
and your slow breathing reminds me
of the relaxation techniques that I learned in therapy
and though we sleep well under false pretense
and we are nothing but tourists
we find a way to stay alive and satisfied in this place
of unmatched beauty, where the beaches they continue on to infinity
and maybe if we’re lucky, we’ll get lost at sea
and find a kind of peace
that’s unknown to our generation

Well yer walking slow beside me and your even steps remind me
Of the reasons I continue to walk along these roads
And though we don’t know where we’re going
Our pace is never slowing
cause theres something bigger than the both of us
That pushes us from coast to coast
from road to road, sea to sea
Theres something inside of me that’s makes me want to keep going
Even when the goings tough, even when I’ve had enough
And I want to throw this big bag down
and leave my life on the side of the road
Or in the bushes by the railroad tracks
I’d hop that westbound all alone and I’d never look back
I’d never look back

Now we’re home, you’re off at work, I’m all alone
Maybe I’ll call you on the phone
And tell you all about the status of my mental health
It’s suffering from this routine, from choking dreams
from same old scenes
From these apartment walls closing in around me
In this ugly city

I miss the wind on my face, I miss the sand between my toes
The crunch of gravel ‘neath my boots as we walked along those roads
I miss the grace of the first light waking us up in the morning
I miss running away, leaving town without warning
I miss kicking dust, waiting for a ride
With a smile on my face, and you by my side
And you by my side, and you by my side
