Story

- peels rubber on the roads of desire and yearning, then snaps focus to the offer of a warm, shared bed.

Lyrics

I’ve been waking up humming 
Traveling songs. 
While you're sleeping I'm-a 
Watching for the dawns. 
I'm hearing wet tires on that sparkling road. 


It’s the wounded who heal 
And the weak who get strong. 
I can't figure 
Where our rights went wrong. 
We're working these fields 
Growing nothing but old. 

So come on baby 
Let’s go baby 
There’s a whole world waiting 
There’s a whole world waiting 
There’s a whole world waiting. 
For us 
Waiting for us.

There’s the Church 
There’s the steeple and ya' 
Look inside - there’ all the people. 
And I can see us, cruising by. 
On up past the school. Main Street. 
Waving at that dog with the mean streak. 
Crossing the river 
Where we learned to cry. 

So come on baby 
Let’s go baby 
There’s a whole world waiting 
There’s a whole world waiting 
There’s a whole world waiting. 
For us 
Waiting for us. 

That highway’s glowing 
like a shiny new dime 
That sky is calling 
so now’s the time! 

And then I hear your voice 
sayin’ “Come back to bed". 
You hold up the sheets 
sayin’: “Lay down your head". 
“’cuz there’s a whole world waiting 
a whole world wainting 
a whole world 
waiting for us”.
