Album: Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness (2014)
  • Somewhere out on the cold October
    Somewhere under the canyon moon
    Counter jammin' a slow exposure
    California and her new view

    She couldn't handle another season
    Another ocean, of fish and blue
    Said a prayer to a dashboard of Jesus
    Death valley and worn out shoes

    When the roads end to desert everywhere
    Somewhere out in the cold October, she disappeared
    She disappeared

    Take all your troubles and put them to bed
    Burn down the mission that maps in your hair
    Shine like bullet don't know the way
    With shame kinda' got away from you, you

    Leaves are falling and the church bells are ringing
    Marching down in a high school dream
    Little town at a faded beauty
    They still remember when she was queen

    When the roads end to desert everywhere
    Leaves are falling and the church bell's ringing
    She disappears
    She disappears

    Take all your troubles, put them to bed
    Burn down the mission that maps in your hair
    Shine like bullet don't know the way
    With shame kinda' got away from you, you

    Somewhere out on a cold October
    And where she ended no one knew

    Take all your troubles, put them to bed
    Burn down the mission that maps in your hair
    Shine like bullet don't know the way
    With shame

    Take all your troubles, put them to bed
    Burn down the mission that maps in your hair
    Shine like bullet don't know the way
    With shame kinda' got away from you, youWriter/s: Andrew Ross McMahon, Kevin M. Griffin, Samuel S. Hollander
