Spirit Rider

Album: Forever Words (2018)
  • [Verse 1]
    On a moonbeam there might come a spirit rider
    Who'll be watching for a flickering in the gloom
    He will put a feeler out for love and welcome
    And he just might cast a shadow across your room

    I will scent out any evidence of danger
    I will test the air around my sugar shack
    If my heart knows you won't treat it like a stranger
    And if the fire is lit I'll be riding back

    [Verse 2]
    Before you know it you will see a spirit rider
    Cut me off babe and I'll be gone
    I will mount my high oh and I will ride off m'am
    And I'll go on and on and on and on and on
    The lies you lay in one ear will blow out the other
    Let a storm rage on me on my outward track.

    If I hear bluebirds I won't go any farther
    And if the sky gets clear I'll be riding back

    [Verse 3]
    I will ramble, drift and range
    And you'll be walking round imaginary things upon the floors
    Walk in circles 'round the reasons that have vanished
    You'll forget what doesn't matter anymore
    You might get a glimpse of me off in the distance
    If you cry out I might hear you on the wind
    And if the mountains echo your love to me
    Wave your heart and I'll be riding back again
    Wave your heart and I'll be riding back again
