"The Colorado Kid" as written by and David Olney....
The Colorado Kid is moving at the speed of light
Fast as fate he fades into the darkest heart of night
And everything that went before is soon enough behind him
Except the visions in his head that serve only to remind him
Of other days and other nights and other arms that held him
Of longing looks and loving sighs and other lies she'd tell him
La la la la la la

Was it love or was it pure obsession
Come on, Kid, make your confession
Then you can make your getaway
Tell it straight or you'll wind up in a tangle
Are those the lights of Durango
Or just the light of another day

The Colorado Kid is moving at the speed of death
Slow and hard and painful as the laboring of his breath
Alamosa, Purgatory, up to Colorado Springs
Higher always higher til the blood inside him sings
Of other rooms and cheap perfume and the sweet smell of her sweat
Of all the nights that went before he knows he can't forget
La la la la la

Was it love or was it pure obsession
Come on, Kid, make your confession
Then you can make your getaway
Tell it straight or you'll wind up in a tangle
Are those the lights of Durango
Or just the light of another day
