Once we were all whole

In the rile of freedom
A tired old cowboy stops to pray
He an't praying for salvation
He just prays to get away

And I know I am just wander upon
A truth I lie
A rock for a pillow
Nothing but pure blue sky

Horses run wails
Add drop of dew
And the music keeps playing
For once there was me
Now there is only you


I was in the mood for some water
Came upon a daughter of the sale
She was of the amber
I was of the of the gold

She said it does not matter
She just wanted some thing to hold
Every kiss was like sunshine
Every whisper pure shaman
Stopped by the answer

Let the burning sun take us sane
An't reason or living
Dying an't that grand
In the quiet of never

Always were a woman and a man
Traveled on the river
From here to eternity
Kept the anger in the sonnet
Set the last verse free

We are borne to travel
A road as wide as all night
Kept the moon a bay
Till we absorbed sunlight

Just a couple reaching for a passion known
Just tomorrow sitting on our precious stone
Was a drifter on pale white horse I cried
She was the answer but in our hearts we lied

Silver buckle on great stallion told
We were so much younger
Wiser to growing old
And I was in the mood for some water
Accepted her sweet wine

Kept for a season
Claimed her lust for mine
She drifted off on a great white whale she sighed
And in the midst of the crying

We both a little died
Sing a song of the hero
Watch his horse fade away
See the stars rest in honor
While the cast of fools play

We were the answer in heated bar we cry
One more for the country
Two more to die
And I know the silence of the death and the tomb

But it is the lover who controls the room
Just an old story of time mixed with fame
The entire honor like the whiskey finds the drain
In the rile of freedom
A tired old cowboy stops to pray

He an't praying for salvation
He just prays to get away

And I know I am just wandering upon
A truth I lie
A rock for a pillow
Nothing but pure blue sky

Horses run wails
Add drop of dew
And the music keeps playing
For once there was me
Now there is only you

In a bed of clover
Naked as the dawn
Angel waiting
Lover sings her song
