lyrics

Nighttime fell hours ago
Black jagged landscape against a sapphire glow
I’m sitting still but somehow moving
Through tunnelled darkness towards moonlight

I guess that means I lost a bet
I owe someone somewhere an un-payable debt
I guess the night has many faces
And some of them must put me through my paces

I’m staring into faces that I don’t know
C’mon look me in the eyes; I need to feel somebody’s soul
I can see you keep your secrets hidden underneath that hat
Won’t you tell me everything about that?

Let’s share another drink to pass the time
I’ll share my whiskey like you shared your wine
Rye smoothes over rougher edges
Of Rocky Mountains and conversations

I measure the weight by rhythm
Hold horizontally for so long
I make it equal by the sound
Stop the pour before you hear this note’s gone

I’m staring into faces that I don’t know
C’mon, look me in the eyes; I need to feel somebody’s soul
I can see you keep your secrets hidden underneath that hat
Won’t you tell me everything about that?

You’re standing on your own two feet
Pretending that you can’t
But if we’re gonna waste the night away
That’s the worst thing to pretend
Pretend you know me well
And that we’ve always been good friends
Just pretend until the night has ended
