Lost In The Valley Lyrics

DOTTED LINE

MY NAKED HAND HANGING OUT THE CAR WINDOW
PLAYING WITH RIBBONS OF WIND
THE SUN SHINING OFF THE DOTTED LINE

AN OCEAN OF GRAIN ROLLING IN GOLDEN WAVES
A DISTANT TRAIN WHISTLES LOW
AND WE RACE ALONG SLOWLY TO THE COUNTY LINE

A NEON VINE WINDING UP A LONE SIGN POST
HEAT RIPPLES UP FROM THE ROAD
AND YOU’VE NEVER KNOWN COLD OR A LONG LINE

WHEN THE STARS COME OUT AT NIGHT
SHINING BRIGHTER THAN ANYONE
THE STARS COME OUT AT NIGHT
SHINING BRIGHTER THAN ANY LOVE

THE PAINTED SKY SHOWING OFF EVERY SHADE
NOT A CLOUD IN THE WAY
ALL THE BIRDS LINED UP ON THE POWER LINE

POORHOUSE

I’VE BEEN TO COTTONTOWN, TENNESSEE
PLAYED MY HEART OUT
LEFT MISSOURI IN MISERY
I’VE SEEN EVERYTHING A MAN CAN SEE
WROTE IT ALL DOWN AND
PLAYED IT IN EVERY KEY

NEED TO BREAK EVEN BEFORE WE BREAK DOWN
THIS LIVING IS WEARING ME OUT
TRYING TO KEEP IT GOING
IS KEEPING ME IN THE POORHOUSE

CAN’T REMEMBER WHAT I’M WORKING FOR
EVERY DOLLAR I MAKE FLIES RIGHT OUT THAT OPEN DOOR
HOW CAN YOU WIN IF NO ONE’S KEEPING SCORE
I DON’T WANT MUCH I JUST WANT A LITTLE MORE

DOING EVERYTHING I CAN
NEVER SEEMS TO BE ENOUGH

WHAT HAPPENED TO A GUARANTEE
I CAN'T DEPEND ON ANYTHING
I'VE LOOKED EVERYWHERE MY LUCK COULD BE
I WAS TOLD SOMETHING GOOD’S WAITING FOR ME


LOST IN THE VALLEY

LOST IN THE VALLEY I WAS LOST IN THE VALLEY
LOST IN THE VALLEY SO I CLIMBED UP A MOUNTAIN
CLIMBED UP A MOUNTAIN OH I CLIMBED UP A MOUNTAIN
CLIMBED UP A MOUNTAIN TO GET LOST IN THE SKY

TELL ME WHEN I CAN START AGAIN
I’LL GET IT RIGHT THIS TIME
SEND ME WHERE THE SUNLIGHT BENDS
I’LL FIND IT BY AND BY

LOST ON THE MOUNTAIN I WAS LOST ON THE MOUNTAIN
LOST ON THE MOUNTAIN TIL I SAW HOW THE CROW FLIES
SAW HOW THE CROW FLIES OH I SAW HOW THE CROW FLIES
SAW HOW A CROW FLIES AND I TOOK TO THE SKY

FREE WHEN I’M FLYING OH I’M FREE WHEN I’M FLYING
FREE WHEN I’M FLYING TIL I SAW THE HORIZON
SAW THE HORIZON HOW I WANTED THAT HORIZON
SAW THE HORIZON SO I MADE FOR THAT LINE

LOST IN THE VALLEY I WAS LOST IN THE VALLEY
CLIMBED UP A MOUNTAIN OH I CLIMBED UP A MOUNTAIN
FREE WHEN I’M FLYING OH I’M FREE WHEN I’M FLYING
SAW THAT HORIZON HOW I WANTED THAT HORIZON


IDAHO

HEADLIGHTS STARING DOWN THE ROAD AHEAD
YOU’RE SILENT BESIDE ME I DON’T WANT TO ASK
LAST NIGHT I COULDN’T HELP THE THINGS I SAID
YOU KEPT YOUR DISTANCE PAINTING ON ANOTHER MASK

HARD TIMES KNOCKING AT OUR DOOR AGAIN
JUST CAN’T FIGHT IT, FORGOTTEN HOW TO RUN
COLD HANDS LIKE A STRANGER’S ON YOUR SKIN
CAN’T SLEEP BESIDE YOU SO I RISE BEFORE THE SUN

WHERE CAN WE GO FROM HERE
WHERE CAN WE GO
WE KEEP TRYING TO GET BACK TO IDAHO

OLD SONGS KEEP US DANCING ROUND THE ROOM
STUCK IN CIRCLES NOTHING NEW TO SAY
HOW LONG CAN ONE HEART BEAT SO CONFUSED
WE CAN’T STAY HERE WAITING ON ANOTHER DAY


NORTH OF BOSTON

WE WERE BORN NORTH OF BOSTON THIRTY YEARS AGO
WALKED ALONG MARBLE HALLS BUILT TO FEED OUR SOULS
WE GOT ALL WE EVER WANTED
ALL WE WANTED
OLD FRIEND 

TOO LONG, HAVEN'T SEEN YOU LATELY BUT I HEARD THE NEWS
ALWAYS KNEW YOU LIKED YOUR FUN
I NEVER THOUGHT IT'D TAKE HOLD OF YOU
I HEAR YOU TOOK WHAT YOU WANTED
ALL YOU WANTED
OLD FRIEND

NOW WHAT YOU GONNA DO
HIDE UNDER THE TABLE AND LICK YOUR WOUNDS
DAYLIGHT'S WANING
PATIENCE FADING
KEEP ON WAITING

GOLDEN BOY, EVER WONDER WHAT YOU PUT THEM THROUGH
BROKEN DOORS, BROKEN DISHES
WHAT WAS IT YOU HAD TO PROVE
ANYTHING FOR DADDY'S MISSION
GOTTA DO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO
SHOULDN'T HAVE TO WORK SO HARD TO MAKE SOMEONE LOVE YOU

YOU WERE THERE WHEN I WAS HUNGRY
YOU WERE THERE WHEN I WAS COLD
YOU WERE THERE WHEN I WAS LONELY
JUST NEEDED A HAND TO HOLD
OLD FRIEND
