follow the overgrown railroad track
through the weeds and grass and shotgun shacks
down by the signal crossing and the burned out cadillacs
summer it is nearly gone it never seems to last too long
til the cold northern wind comes to take the season back
& the holy rollers roll through town again
on a mission of redemption to wash away our sins
i am sanctified only by the darkness of your eyes
& swimming in the quarry
cool water on your skin

building castles in the air
cheshire smile mad as the march hare
firewater cuts the dust & we make quite a pair
here in the county seat, our sleepy municipality
it's churches depots fire stations bars & country fairs
& I love it here though I know someday we're leaving
as long as I am with you girl I don't care where we go
we were always too free for believing in anything but fireflies
& rolling in the meadow

my heart is turning ever, turning ever, turning ever to you
my heart is turning ever to you
