I’ve lost the reasons for my flight
And vainly try to count the miles
As headlights reach into the night
Clawing at the concrete line
Cutting through the prairie grass
Endless is the chase
My Goodyears wail a highway verse
A harsh reproach is in their voice
Storm clouds gather to the west
Ghosts to guard the mountain pass
Flickering like fire flies
Lightning cracks the sky

I embrace the lonely comfort of the road
I’m getting out of Dodge and breaking for home
Leaving you, wind blown

Your breathless whispers call me back
Ignite the flames of ancient aches
Black Hills sprawl out in my wake
Road kill for the crows to pick
Wyoming yawns before my eyes
Endless is the drive
Darkness veils a blackened soul
Cut out, scarred and long exposed
Freight trains baying at the moon
Echo past sand-papered buttes
In air as clear, as sharp as hurt
I carry in my heart

I embrace the lonely comfort of the road
I’m getting out of Dodge and breaking for home
Leaving you, wind blown

Memories stir like dust devils
Then disappear against my will
Rosy fingered light of dawn
Wins our race into town
Glaring off the granite peaks
Ending all our dreams

I embrace the lonely comfort of the road
I’m getting out of Dodge and breaking for home
Leaving you, wind blown
