The sun went down on another town
Where they moved faster than the night could fall

And the dashboard held a new horizon
Old coffee dregs and caramel

And it really doesn't matter where they're going
Just so long as they are going there

And the sun went down on another town

Without so much as a breeze the road was warm and the fields were picture still

And the headlights cut the evening in two
The engine cut the silence until they melt together in the wind

A Road that isn't long
The travel, the travel is not hard at all

And the sun went down on another town

She said 'I hear it never rains in Southern California, but man do they have earthquakes there'
'And travellers have a tendency to embellish their stories these places are never all that they're cracked up to be'

And the travel is the destination
And arrival is any place you choose to lay your hat

As the sun went down on another town

Well in burning her belly didn't let up any
And the signs said 50 miles to someplace else

But racing on towards the small hours
There was simply no-one else alive

And the sun went down on another town

And every time we jump the lights in Nowheresville
Her expression would stretch into the corners as a smile

And there'd be hell to pay if they went back again
Something told him they would have to someday

But it really doesn't matter where they're going
Just so long as they are going there

And the sun went down on another town
Oh let the sun go down on another town
