lyrics

You were never one
to stick around
Always out getting lost,
never want to be found.
You say the wind is blowing,
it's whispering your name,
All I hear is your pick-up truck,
I guess they sound the same.

You can dig for silver and gold,
but you can't mine the northern lights.
And you can chase the sun all day
but the moon still brings the night.

You were always one
to pick up and go.
Said you found a life for yourself
somewhere on the road.
Every time I've seen you leave
you never blow a kiss.
I guess you'll come back around
with the next lunar eclipse.

You can dig for silver and gold,
but you can't mine the northern lights.
And you can chase the sun all day
but the moon still brings the night.

You look me in the eyes
and promise that you'll stay.
But every time you roll into town
you never unpack your bags.

You can dig for silver and gold,
but you can't mine the northern lights.
And you can chase the sun all day
but the moon still brings the night.
