Lyrics
In the cow-dust hour
Something's going down
Whatever pierced the heart it didn't make a sound
I am terrified
But I'm not losing sleep
If I'm falling then I'm falling at her feet

I'm leaving America
I'm taking a girl
I'm selling my soul again
I'm gaining the world
Every sense defies
This impossible dream
None of the history books
Describe what I've seen

The rose
The breath
The undying spark
The lotus hearts open
Embracing the dark
On the uncharted road
It's the not coming back
In the language I speak
It's the words that I lack

In the oncoming cars
A wedding of stars

Will I know your name
Or recognise your face
Or by what means I'll be delivered from this place
Here comes the gun
There goes the flash
Once the bullet leaves it's never coming back

The scent of magnolia
The face of a girl
And every detail embodies the world
What kind of goals define
This impossible dream
None of the picture books
Reflect what I've seen
I'm leaving America
I'm taking the girls
I'll fire from the future
And ambush the world

On the uncharted road
It's the not coming back
In the language I speak
It's the words that I lack

The scent of magnolia
The face of a girl
And every detail embodies the world
What kind of goals define
This impossible dream
None of the picture books
Describe where I've been
I'm leaving America
I'm taking the girls
I'll fire from the future
And ambush the world
