Long Gone

As the darkness sets like a hand on a stone
And the stars become your body
All those places I have known
And the Diesel burns(?) down the miles of memory
Well I wake up in the dreaming
Do you ever dream of me
'cause I'm long gone - long gone from your love
Yes I'm long gone - long gone from your love

And the morning sun just like one big ol' headlight
Separates my sandy eyelids from the desert of my life
All I see is road devils dancing in the heat
as it rises from the asphalt as my leaving just repeats
And I'm long gone - long gone from your love
Yes I'm long gone - long gone from your love

You don't have to ask me where I'm going to because
I never turned around to watch it burning
I see you through the screen door but I'm long gone from your love
And girl, I don't know when I'll be returning
'cause I'm long gone, long gone from your love
Yes I'm long gone, long gone from your love

As the darkness sets like a hand on a stone
And the stars become your body
All those places I have known
