Lyrics
A song is a dream that keeps going on when it's over
A man hears a song in the soft spoken voice of his lover
A hero goes on when the others believe it's all over
A sister is strong when she fights for the cause of her brother

A crow with a broken wing stands at the side of the highway
A traveller finds a place to sleep at the end of a long day
I speak through a telephone
You can't decipher what I say
We'll meet in Decatur
I'll tell you I love you in five days

A human is something that rises and falls over time, dear
Your breathing slows down and you sleep in the fluorescent light, dear
We're passing through town and there isn't a soul we can trust here
We don't use our real names. We struggle. We do what we must here

Drive with me into the Great Unknown
I think we are on our own
I think we're really on our own

A song is a dream that keeps going on when it's over
A man hears a song in the soft spoken voice of his lover
A hero goes on when the others believe it's all over
A sister is strong when she fights for the cause of her brother
