lyrics

Step back from the bonfire baby
With them strap shoes on your feet
Why don't we sit and talk on the rooftop
Stare up at the stars maybe smoke some weed
Empties they strewn the backyard
They glisten in the glow of a midwest moon
But I can hear them song birds calling out
"Hey kids the mornin', it's comin' soon!"

Oh no the lines we toe are gettin' farther from my reach
But I'll go on like nothing's wrong if you swear you'll never leave

Storm clouds rolling in I'm hangin' on the front porch with my friends
Toasting to a long life hoping that these good times never end

But I can see we're all tossin seeds in the hopes one will take hold
Far away from the reach of these dead-end that streets we found here at the crossroads

Please god feet don't fail me
Let my back be strong, hands steady
Fix my gaze and set off thru the cold
If I don't lose my way on these roads
Send you a letter from my new home

Listen to that wind it's howling
U-ah-uuuuuu u u
Calling out your name
Telling you to make a change yeah
But don't forget the sun it shines down
U-ah-uuuuuu u u
On hearts in need of sights unseen
Born in the corners of our wildest dreams so
Steady as you go
Take the reins honey grab hold
And leap with me into mystery
Yeah we'll lap it up as it unfolds...
