APRIL EYES 


I left you on a Sunday morning
Going out to seek a western sky
Kansas tried to kill me with boredom
But I kept my eyes on the Colorado line

The wind turbines flash in time
With the hum of "Sweet Carolina"
I wish you were seeing this with me
Your April eyes staring back at me

I sit alone at the Running Bear Rest Stop
Best pancakes I think I’ll ever eat
Spokane waits for my arrival
Damn the days without you feel like weeks

The wind turbines flash in time
With the hum of "Sweet Carolina"
I wish you were seeing this with me
Your April eyes staring back at me

I know you'd love the waters of the northwest
In Portland, we'd have a couple rounds
But I let the redwood winds wash you all away
'Cause I'm the only one who's San Francisco bound

The wind turbines flash in time
With the hum of "Sweet Carolina"
I wish you were seeing this with me
Your April eyes staring back at me
