Western Skies

Day of Reckoning

I used to walk down lonely street
Past the bars and the grand hotels
Checking out all the beautiful people
who were checking in

Now I walk like the street is mine
Hand in hand with our dreams entwined
Baby, you brought about my day of reckoning

Satellite town shook up youth
I used to dream of an unshakeable truth
Something I could fly my flag upon
and never need to give in

But now I’m all through taking swipes
I got promoted and I lost my stripes
I’m ditchin’ all I’ve been bitchin’ about
and letting love come in

I used to walk down lonely street
Past the bars and the grand hotels
Checking out all the beautiful people
who were checking in

Now I walk like the street is mine
Hand in hand with our dreams entwined
Baby, you brought about my day of reckoning

I see the sun paint the whole town red
And softly show me back to you instead
I’m confessin’ all my sins and I’m reachin’
with a higher aim

Strolling down by the marketplace
Hangin’ music on a half - seen face
But rollin’ round in my head is the sound of
"I Heard Her Call My Name"

What’s the deal with the fear I feel,
is it the real me squealin’?
On the one on the run from the sum of my heart and soul
Who’d take a trip round the universe
In my head while my world got worse
And disengage, slip my stays, float away until I’d lost control
