Calm blue sky on the edge of the horizon
Calm blue waves at the edge of the sea
They're no match for the storm that is rising
There's a hurt in my core that is gnawing at me

Carolina is oh such a light year away
And the phone is no way to tell them I care
You were out in Salina living for today
With the sun at your back and the wind in your hair

I left for the work
More I left for the pay
But the coast gets so cold at night
And often wish I had stayed
For nights on the prairie
Were swimming in stars
And the tall grass beneath me
Grew into my heart

Walk away from a life that is chosen for you
We each take our own breath, we find our own peace
Left a part of my soul in each town that I pass through
Gave the most to my family but kept some for me

You were growing on me, we were growing apart
Gathering our rosebuds, but from different fields
Why's it always appear that our words are so sharp
When the cuts come most easy, take the long road to heal?

I left for the work
More I left for the pay
But the coast gets so cold at night
And often wish I had stayed
For nights on the prairie
Were swimming in stars
And the tall grass beneath me
Grew into my heart

I'm coming home
There's a light in the darkness that's burning for you
I'm coming home
Where the sun dries the wheat shocks and the warm air blows through
