Lyrics: Blue Horizon

This is a song about moving on.  I got the idea for it while driving in a U-Haul as I was moving from Pittsburgh to New York.  I sketched out the first draft of the lyrics while sitting in an airport.

Heidi Blickenstaff sings this song on our album.  She rocks.

We have also been lucky enough to have Natalie Weiss and Phoebe Strole perform it for us.  They also rock.


Lyrics after the jump.

The Blue Horizon

 

Push the pedal to the floor,
The U-Haul starts to fly
Bland Ohio countryside
Is swiftly sliding by.

In the rearview I can see
Clouds of what we used to be.
And those clouds begin to spread,
But the sunrise lies ahead.

Yeah, the western sky is black,
But I’m never looking back.
Cause I’ve got my eyes on the road and the blue horizon.

Speeding in these mountain hills,
A fog drifts through my mind.
Distant echoes in my ear
Of the life I left behind.

Miles from everything I know
With a million miles to go.
But this mist can’t wash away
Thoughts of you and yesterday.

But my mind will soon be clear
And this fog will disappear
Cause I’ll keep my eyes on the road and the blue horizon.

All the roads you led me down.
Twists and turns you sped me through.
All the detours and mistakes, all the times I hit the brakes,
Brought me winding back to you.

Well, you stole those seven years,
Blinked my eyes and they were gone,
But I’m finally changing gears,
I’m driving on.

As the skyline comes in view,
Brand new city welcomes me.
In this maze of glass and steel,
For the first time, I feel free.

Not a victim of my past.
Now I’m moving on at last.
True, I’m travelling alone,
But at least my life’s my own.

Now I’ll mend my broken heart,
And I’ll make a brand new start.
Cause I’ve got my eyes on the road–
Yeah, I’ve got my eyes on the road–
Yeah, I’ve got my eyes on the road and the blue horizon.
And the blue horizon.
And the blue horizon.
