You rode into Reno
With a flat tire and matches

All his clothes soaked in fumes
When blood were his tools

He heard a few stories
Of premium interest

Couldn't turn his back on it yet
He had friends he could hound


He didn't know it yet
But sipping away on something

He didn't hear it
Until there was no one around


She fell into phoenix
With barely a presence

Hard rain followed
Harder onto the highways

The daughter kettle was sleeping
And the street lights were curious

Who was this woman
Who keeps her headlights off

She didn't know it
But slipping away off something

She didn't hear it
Until there was no one around

She said I want to ride
Out of this valley

Feel the cool wind
Off my face

I know it
Moving in tomorrow

But tonight I'll think
on the absence of fears

And tonight was weeping
A torrent against them

She was feeling some remorse
As she slipped down the road

Her pockets were empty
And here's what got heavy

That they both had to run
from something that they left


Knowing that I will be everything around me
And everything around me will complete me too



He said I want to ride
out of this valley

Feel the cool wind
Of my face

    General CommentThis song is incredible! But, I'm pretty sure these lyrics are incorrect. I think these are the correct ones:

    He rolled into Reno with a flat tire and matches
    All his clothes soaked in fumes
    Oil and blood were his tools
    He’d heard a few stories
    Of premium interest
    Couldn’t turn his back on it yet
    He had friends he could hound
    He didn’t notice the slipping away of something
    He didn’t hear it until there was no one around

    She fell into Phoenix, with barely a presence
    Hard rain followed her onto the highways
    Her daughter Carol was sleeping and the streetlights were curious
    Who is this woman who keeps her headlights off?
    She didn’t notice the slipping away of something
    She didn’t hear it until there was no one around

    She said I want to ride out of this valley.
    Feel the cool wind, of my fate.
    I know that new fears will begin tomorrow
    But tonight I’ll think only on the absence of things.

    ooh ooh...

    The cool night was weeping a torrent against them
    She was feeling some remorse as she slid down the road
    Her pockets were empty and his weren’t that heavy
    But they both had to run, for something they could nab.

    She bows for the future, he bows for the calf.

    He said I want to ride out of this valley.
    Feel the cool wind of my fate.
    I know that new fears will begin tomorrow
    But tonight I’ll think only on the absence of things.

    I want to ride out of this valley
    Feel the cool wind of my fate
    Knowing that I will be everything around me
    And everything around me will complete me too

    Knowing that I will be everything around me
    And everything around me will complete me too...

    General CommentYour lyrics are far better than what is posted. One thing I heard a little differently:

    "But they both had to run, for something they couldn't have.

    He bows for the future, she bows for the calf.
    She bows for the future, he bows for the calf."
