lyrics

Was it the hum of the late night guitars calling alone
was it the hazy glow of the tail lights that followed you home
was it the weight of the years settled down in your bones
that made you finally decide to surrender

your heart was hard and cold and withered like a shed made of tin
sometimes the light that shines from outside would come sneaking in
you tried so hard to buy what cannot be sold
now you can't believe your own eyes anymore

if you ever run into people who know me
maybe you'll mention my name and they'd show you
some kind of amazing love for someone
that falls like the stars and burns like the sun

and it's colder than hell in the winter up here in the north
herkimer county new york where my family was born
most folks stay for something or someone
you made it rich with a life on the run

if you ever run into people who know me
maybe you'll mention my name and they'd show you
some kind of amazing love for someone
that falls like the stars and burns like the sun.
