Lyrics

Moon shines through your window
Pretend to sleep because of the things we said
My truck is packed and ready
Goodbye kiss as the moonlight sun falls on your hair

But I've got to fly
And you know, I'm no good at goodbyes
You turn and sigh
Man, you'd Make a River Cry

Each time you think it might be different
Will I finally jump off the wandering train?
But my lost stop is just a new beginning
And a morning kiss, that won't ease your pain

But I've got to fly
And you know, I'm no good at goodbyes
You turn and sigh
Man, you'd Make a River Cry

And you know, I've got to fly
And you know, I'm no good at goodbyes
You turn and sigh
Man, you'd Make a River Cry
you turn and sigh
Man, you'd Make a River...Cry

-I like the sentiment and the vibe
-I like the hook/title
-I hear a country rock arrangement when you're ready - big electric guitars!
-the archetypical 'wanderin' man' is always a great theme
-simple chordal structure
