Words and music by Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers
From the album
Humming My Way Back Home

It’s a small town in her mind
With such a big road screaming by
She can taste the fumes, the destination
Watching the sun sink in the hill
Above the dust-clogged windowsill
The dark removes her hesitation

Soon it will be alright
She’s wasting time no more
All the hush and the heat
Of a dream going down

He’s such a big man in her mind
With such a small view of the sky
The horizon shrunk in black sunglasses
She’d been a young girl on his arm
As if the world could hold no harm
Where they lay alone in prairie grasses

Soon it will be alright
She’s wasting time no more
All the pain and the parch
Of a dream going down
Going down

He finds the screen door flapping wide
Without a light left on inside
Where the radio speaks, no one listens
While on the freeway she drives on
Her reservations all but gone
In the blasting wind, the firing pistons

Soon it will be alright
She’s wasting time no more
All the rage and the rush
Of a dream going down

She’s on her way, any way
So long, so long, so long
