"Telluride" as written by Troy Verges and Brett James....
When I was nineteen I threw my stuff in the car
I headed up to the Rockies, got a job at this bar
Selling beer to the locals, just barely getting by
On the tips from the rich kids, there on daddy's dime
But when I saw her walk in one night
I knew that I would be all right in

Telluride, the snow falling down
I was waking up in that sleepy little town
In her eyes my world came so alive
I never will forget the moment she arrived
In Telluride

We spent that whole winter tangled up by a fire
Casting shadows on the cabin wall, drowning in desire
Confessing all our secrets and laughing out loud
So high up on that mountain, I thought we would never come down
It was a dream we were living in
And I was the happiest I had ever been in

Telluride, whoa-oh-oh

It ended just like a movie scene
And I had to play the part
Of the lover who stood there and watched her leave
And me with the frozen heart

In Telluride, the snow falling down
Standing there alone in that sleepy little town
In her eyes, my world came so alive
I never will forget the day she said goodbye

    General CommentI absolutely love this song, and I used to hate country music. There is a spelling mistake in the second to last part, where it says "hat" instead of had. Also, after "It was a dream we were living in" he says "I was the happiest I'd ever been, in" and then it goes back into the bridge.

    General CommentGreat song, and so much better than Josh Gracin's version (which is still better than most of what's on the radio today).

    The meaning is fairly straight forward, its about discovering love for the first time and getting your heart broken for the first time.
