Story

A love song, a traveling song which emerged very naturally from the way I play the 12 string guitar.

Lyrics

I am a driver on a western highway From the mountains to the sea And there’s a song of the western highway That’s saying I will be free The sky is fading to the colour of the valley Dust of angels and dust of dreams Your city lights will shine until tomorrow And I will not be here But your light is brighter than anything I’ve ever seen And I hear your voice on every station Singing out of your dream Here I am on the road again The song began and in the end I was standing by I was standing by the sea And by the roadside the trees are shimmering Black and silver in the cold night air And under the moon a new song singing Saying I will meet you there And your light is brighter than anything I’ve ever seen And I hear your voice on every station Singing out of your dream Here I am on the road again The song began and in the end I was standing by I was standing by the sea
