Got your call from California But I could hardly hear your voice Through the hissing of the highway And all that other noise You said "I might lose you in the canyon" Then you went riding up the coast Now all these things we leave unspoken Seem to haunt me like a ghost
CHORUS: I lost you in the canyon Guess you tried to let me know Lost you in the canyon A long, long time ago Lost you in the canyon Brother you fade out slow
There were times I thought I knew you Before these changes came to pass But you don't think about it do you? From up there in your house of glass The Earth is shifting underneath you The land is sliding all around Do you ever stop to wonder About that paradise you've found?
I hear you moving through the mountains Through the fires and the floods But I can't fix this bad connection In the wires or the blood
