about

The day the music died.

lyrics

(Inspired from a conversation with Craig Spirko about Buddy Holly)

I'm sitting on the runway
Here at Clear Lake
The snow is still falling
And I’m grinding my teeth

I've got ten bags of laundry
And my guitar in the back
Flyin' all the way to Fargo
While the sky is still black

Not sure how I got here
With my eyes full of stars
Singing one song after another
How did I get this far

Feels like I've been snow blind
For weeks on end
I miss those quiet mornings
And the warmth of your skin

The way you'd correct me
And change my mind
You talk about starting a family
I think we still got time

All I ever needed
Was to be your man
And I promise to call you
Once this bird lands

I'm sitting on the runway
Here at Clear Lake
The pilot guns the engine
And lets off the brake

What if I was to die tonight
And leave you this way
I bet you'd never forgive me
That'll be the day

I'd love to close my eyes and sleep
But this plane's too loud
But if I could I'd dream of a sunrise
And a pair of brown eyes

Oh just to see one more sunrise
And your lovely eyes

02-2009
