about

i just love these grooves. you can't help but just fall into a nice pocket when playing them. shawn colvin's 'orion in the sky' is what we used as inspiration for this cut. glenn's vocal is the demo.

lyrics

drive all night
(bidmead/buchanan)

looking at your picture
that’s hanging on my wall
thinking bout the good times
trying not to think about the fall
thinking bout the words
that could have changed it all

well it’s a long way down

there’s always something missing
in an empty house at night
some of us don’t go the distance
yet some make out alright
but there’s always hope tomorrow
just to try and put things right

it’s a long way down
when there’s nowhere to fall
and your hearts on the ground

well it’s a long road leads nowhere
through the state of my heart
and i just drive all night
though it tears me apart
the state of my heart

working keeps my mind off you
between the mountains and the plains
like a man at one with nature
but something still don’t feel the same
and i’m praying for forgiveness
i’m just hoping that it rains

it’s a long way down
when there’s nowhere to fall
and your hearts on the ground

chorus

and i could make excuses
on how the west was won
but it won’t bring you back to me
it won’t give us both back
our day in the sun

it’s a long way down
when there’s nowhere to fall
and your hearts on the ground

chorus
