Riding through nostalgia, shaking memories by the mile
The distance grows shorter for a while

"the roads never lead where they're supposed to go"

The words bleed off the page, the letter becomes well-soaked
Ventures on up through the colorades and settles under the rock
And pines, and stakes claim
And wonders if what they had could ever be sparked
They just twist 'round and 'round the flame
The eyes closing, the heart retains
That's where he gets lost and drifts off alone
