Miles of sky and empty space
Mirrors my soul
I'm out here on my own
I got a new job and a couple new friends
There's even someone special,
I think I could start again
But every time we touch
It reminds me of us, and...
Every time I close my eyes
To go to sleep at night
I wake up and I see your face
Even in my dreams
I can't get anyplace
I can't shake off your lovin' chains
Your lovin' chains...
So I moved back east just to face my tears
To say what needs sayin' before you disappear
But old friends say you're gone
Long since moved on, now...
I think I'm never gonna climb this mountain
Of my feelings for you
I'm gonna have to live here in your shadow
Until the skies are no longer blue!
