lyrics 

I've Been Alone

I've been alone
For a long time
For some daylight
And some night-time
You know
How the time flies
And it goes by
And you realize
You are alone
With your ghost friends
When the days end
They say amen
And they go home
To their small towns
Somewhere way out
Yeah there's no doubt
They are alone

I've been alone
Among people
Under steeples
Some cathedrals
And they've been alone
Right beside me
But they deepened me
And they widened me
And truth be told
I was just fine
In the springtime
With the long drive
And the future
Like a vision
I could walk in
If I listened

Why can't we, Why can't we get to each other
Why can't we, Why can't we just be together
You know

I've been alone
And the weekends
Are a weakness
Like my split ends
Are too damn close
To my own head
And my loose threads
Turn maroon red
Can I get alone
On an island
By the highway
And the highlands
Can I go home
To a sunset
With my head high
And some pride left
To wake up slow

Why can't we, Why can't we get to each other
Why can't we, Will it be this way forever
You know

Cause me, man, I've been alone
In my old room
Turning see-through
With a nice view
And every little nerve exposed
Like a child
Or a Clydesdale
Running wild
First time it broke the rope
And jumped the fence
And ran the road
And made it's own sense

Wild Man

The sky is heavy from where I stand behind it
And I've been 'ready gone since the day I found it
You know I carry rain in my mind about it
You know I carry rain

And all the letters that I never send
Sometimes I wonder if this whole thing is an accident
But I've been better off since the day I went
And I've been better off

But somewhere I'm with you
Riding through the tall grass
And my feet are dangling out the back
And I don't have to miss you
When this pickup truck is going so fast
Singing God is a wild man

I wrap myself in light dark as the moon
So I know that when I move you're moving too
But that's the best that I know how to do
And that's the best I know

And I've seen angels standing by the door
Beckoning my eyes to understand more
But I'm the human kind whose feet walk on floor
And I'm the human kind

But somewhere I'm with you
Riding through the tall grass
And my feet are dangling out the back
And I don't have to miss you
When this pickup truck is going so fast
Singing God is a wild man

Take me to where you want to go
Just take me to where
Take me to where you want to go
So long as I have wind in my hair

Somewhere I'm with you
Riding through the tall grass
And my feet are dangling out the back
And I don't have to miss you
When this pickup truck is going so fast
Singing God is a wild man
