I drive across bridges
I hop up on trains
Just to get close to you
We've shared all our secrets
Time and again
Now what is there to do

It's the cost
Of a day of fog and roses
And we're gone
On a ship that never finds land

Cuz we're friends that keep trying to come together.
We’re friends that know how to love.
And we keep finding the songs together
No matter how push comes to shove

Through letters and phone calls
Coffeeshops and bars
We always make a way
To stitch up the roads
That have drawn us apart
We’re always singing again

You held me one time
So close to your heart
And I just pulled away
I never have learned
How to make that fresh start
And I never remember to stay

Take me back home
In your beat up Chevette
Take me back home to our time
It’s further to go
And harder to find
Maybe it’s all in our minds

Under the stars in a forest of pine there was no way to get lost
Except in your words, the fire, the wine
Who ever could know the cost
