  • You wrote "The Kiss" and it is beautiful
    I can listen again and again
    You never really got a break
    From the carwrecks and the pain

    You loved the songs of the pioneers
    And the Hollywood cowboy stars
    You were just trying to put a hand
    To where we are, where we are, where we are

    Living in a '55 Cadillac
    Five people sleep in shifts
    Robbing liquor stores and going back
    With the cash and rolling in it

    You loved the songs of the pioneers
    And the Hollywood cowboy stars
    You were just trying to put a hand
    To where we are

    You never talked about your past
    About the drugs and walking in the streets
    They found you with a needle in your arm
    Beloved books strewn around your feet

    You loved the songs of the pioneers
    And the Hollywood cowboy stars
    You were just trying to put a hand
    To where we are

    You loved the songs of the pioneers
    And the Hollywood cowboy stars
    You were just trying to put a hand
    To where we are, where we are, where we are, where we are
