    There's a light out on the freeway
    says it's time to go
    I'm wasting my time counting
    stains on a barroom floor
    Thinking 'bout my hometown
    and the friends I'll leave behind
    Mostly 'bout the man who writes
    his songs with smiling rhymes
    And I'm holding on to a smokey view
    of his dreams in the midnight light

    Michael counts his songs
    in the years of wasted miles
    I used to think he was really part
    of that fantasy in rhyme
    But looking back on all his tunes
    of butterflies and sunshine
    There was only one about the
    man he kept inside
    About the time he crossed the line
    and let a tear come to his eye

    I used to hide out
    in his pretty smile
    And hope it would shine me
    through the morrow
    Until I learned the way
    it feels to be the man
    Who sings the world a smile
    without a soul to share his sorrow

    The light here at the freeway
    well, it's turning green to gold
    The stains on that barroom floor
    ten miles back down the road
    Thinking 'bout how that old bar
    brought Michael back to mind
    And how I can sing his blues
    and be smiling here inside . . .
    I guess a weary soul will always

    I used to hide out
    in his pretty smile
    And hope it would shine me
    through the morrow
    Until I learned the way
    it feels to be the man
    Who sings the world a smile
    without a soul to share his sorrow
