Boxcar dreams, the open road it seems I always find a way to run
Whether it's real I don't mind as long as I can leave myself behind
Every place holds a promise of rest a good life, purpose and friends
But it's never long before the highway calls and my feet are moving again

This curse is more than I can bear
I know that you can set me free
If you send an angel down on me

It was so long ago that night when I called him to the field
I was only a boy then and you know how boys can be
To kill a man sounds so much larger and longer than the time
It takes for blood to leave a wound and to sink into the ground

This curse is more than I can bear
I know that you can set me free
If you send an angel down on me

And if you're listening, if you got the time?
I'm ready to talk about it now
Ready to lay myself down on that line

Letters from friends find me and speak of losing their vision
All the things we swore we'd always believe they now feel hopeless and barren
Yes they told us then
"You are too young to know the world is hard and will break you wide"
We just and danced and held our heads to the sky

This curse is more than we can bear
I know that you can set us free
If you send an angel down on me
