Verse: In the quiet of an autumn afternoon, city park bench dreaming, wintry days in bloom. I know I should be moving on but I really hate to go This is the closest thing to a home that I’ve ever known, but it feels like snow
Miles and days go by and it’s a cold December dawn. I’m outside Kansas City breathing clouds and rubbing palms. My money’s gone and my clothes congealed. My thumb can’t seem to get me wheels. I’m hungry, cold and lonely … then she comes along, and with three words we’re gone ... “need a ride?” … just movin’ on.
Verse: I say I’m nowhere bound, she’s going for L.A. I guess picking up a rider was another way to stake her claim. She says, “I’m going to be a star, boy. Make the world cry, if I choose.” But the makeup that hid her age couldn’t hide her youth, or protect the things she had to lose.
Anyway, we roll on down the highway heading west. Stars and cars and late night bars, the beacons for our quest. The hours fly by, her wit regales and our conversation soars. We’re long lost friends who have never met before. She’s so full of life and life’s allure … and so much more.
Verse: We hit Tucson Friday morning after five As the sunlight splits the dark and the desert vista comes alive, I say, “I can feel this city calling me like a Mother to her child.” Then I laugh and I wait for her wit to wail on my lineage and loathsome life, But she only starts to cry.
She tells me, “I’ve been in Kansas since the day that I was born. I was suffocating, bored and I had to find out there was more. So I ran away from the ones I love … for a dream I can’t be certain of, I’m ashamed to admit that until this trip, I never realized how I’d miss them so. But I’ve got to find what I went looking for, cause there ain’t no cure. Oh, don’t hate me … there ain’t no cure.”
Pre-Chorus: But I couldn’t hate her even if I tried ‘cause she re-awoke what I’d lost inside, so long, long ago. Then she smiles and says “Come away with me. We’ll make the whole world cry … set the whole word free. And I want you to go” … but that’s her dream not mine.
Chorus: Moving on … it’s the only life I’ve ever known Moving on … now I know I need a place to call my own I’ve been feeling no feelings for so, so long.
Verse: You know it’s funny how the fates our fortunes cast. She only dreams about her future. I only mull about my past. I didn’t have no direction on. I came along here for the ride. Tucson was just another place away from places I can’t hide. But when she opened up my heart, it fell inside.
So when the Tucson sunset fills the western sky, In the desert silhouette, against the canvass of twilight, I watch her tail lights gleam and fade to grey and my heart screams, “Girl, don’t go away” Then I hear my voice yell, “Baby, make the whole world cry.” And even though I know I’m going to miss her, I hear it say, “Goodbye.” Mmm mmm mmm “Goodbye.”
