"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
Sellin' beer to the locals, just barely gettin' by
On the tips from the rich kids, their on Daddy's dime
But when I saw her walk in one night
I knew that I'd be alright in...

The snow fallin' down
I was wakin' up with her 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
Castin' shadows on the cabin wall, drownin' in desire
Confessin' all our secrets and laughin' out loud
So high up on that mountain
I thought we'd never come down
It was a dream we were livin' in
And I was the happiest I'd ever been, in....

I will never forget all those sleepless nights in Telleride

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....

I never will forget the day she said good bye, in Telluride

I will never forget all those sleepless nights in Telluride

Telluride [Repeat until fade]

    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.
