From the recording Dark Matter

Lyrics

The rain is falling on the city streets
This place is closing in
The sound of cars and tired shuffling feet
Let’s find an open road

The rain pours down on this dirty old town
And I’m dreaming of an open road
Everything so tightly wound
Little cogs in a world going ‘round

I’ll gather firewood, you fetch water
Let’s take the long road home

Where the Sun beats down on this dreaming land
Wandering down an open road
Lost inside the love that we made
The Sun in your hair and the world going ‘round
You and I in a world spinning ‘round

How small we are in the deepening dark
The stars above draw closer in
I’ll wrap you up in the cloak of night
Our dreams like smoke in the firelight

I’ll gather firewood, you fetch water
Let’s take the long road home
You pick me up when I am falling
Let’s take the long road home

Where the Sun beats down on this dreaming land
Wandering down an open road
Dreaming of the love that we made
The Sun in your hair and the world going ‘round
You and I in a world spinning ‘round

Where the Sun beats down on this dreaming land
Wandering down an open road
Everything we lost has been found
The Sun in your hair and the world going ‘round
You and I in a world spinning ‘round

I’ll gather firewood, you fetch water
Let’s take the long road home
You pick me up when I am falling
Let’s take the long road home
