Before I Go

lyrics

You know, Townes was right
The desert's quiet
It ain’t Cleveland
But it sure gets cold in the moonlight

Mountains in the western sky
They were always meant to occupy
It’s times like these you don’t ask why
It’s bigger than you and I

When the sun lets down its guard
The colors come like a postcard
Slow, but worth all it can afford
A reminder of all we’re moving toward

I’m gonna let my bones be my anchor
Ground myself to what I know
When today becomes a long time ago
Maybe I’ll have learned to let go

Slowing down under the strain
Pulling weight I couldn’t sustain
Took leaving what’s known, for change
To find it’s me that needs to change

Shades of grey among the black and white
I’m seeing things in a different light
Finding what feels free
Finding what I know is right

I’m gonna let my bones be my anchor
Ground myself to what I know
When today becomes a long time ago
Maybe I’ll have learned to let go
I’m gonna take it slow, see what this world’s got to show
And try to let go, before I go

As the day lies down to rest
The sky takes off her Sunday best
Shedding all it had to confess
Leaving what’s true to shine from the darkness

Townes was right, the desert's quiet
Take it slow, so it don’t, pass you by
