With the twilight colors falling
Hidden memories come stealing from my mind
The simple joy of living

Was always out there calling
But now my present miracle
I believe they were roads that I was meant to ride
Like a soldier getting over the war
Like a bandit getting over his lawless ways
I'm like a soldier getting over the war
There were nights I don't remember
Other things I choose not to recall
In my darkest secret memory

From the other times and places
I'm just thankful for the journey
And that my spoils of victory are you
