Late last night, I missed my train
I walked back to the car and drove home again
Just outside of Pittsburgh (it's really not that far)
Saw a light come shining 'cross the reservoir

The sun in California--it drops right into the sea
I took a couple pictures--they don't mean that much to me
Just outside of Pittsburgh (I saw it from my car)
The light shines to the bottom of the reservoir

Starless night, come fall around me
Over all we've left undone
I know the light that shines forever
Howsoever we may run

The moon hung on the hillside in eastern Tennessee
With rows of honeysuckle blooming over me
But the iron hills of Pittsburgh, where all my memories are,
Are gathering the light around the reservoir

Starless night, come fall around me
Over all we've left undone
I know a light that shines forever
Howsoever we may run

Howsoever we may run

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song!!! Funnel Cloud is, in my opinion, Hem's best album so far. This song is just one of the excellent songs on the CD. To me, it feels like a vignette. It's just a picture of how someone felt for a day and the melody is gorgeous!
