Moved out west just to get away
Miles of sky and empty space
Mirrors my soul
Iâ€™m out here on my own
I got a new job and a couple new friends
Thereâ€™s even someone special,
I think I could start again
But every time we touch
It reminds me of us, and...
Every time I close my eyes
To go to sleep at night
I wake up and I see your face
Even in my dreams
I canâ€™t get anyplace
I canâ€™t shake off your lovinâ€™ chains
Your lovinâ€™ chains...
So I moved back east just to face my tears
To say what needs sayinâ€™ before you disappear
But old friends say youâ€™re gone
Long since moved on, now...
I think Iâ€™m never gonna climb this mountain
Of my feelings for you
Iâ€™m gonna have to live here in your shadow
Until the skies are no longer blue!
