Purple Sky

Album: Born Free (2010)
  • We kept apart and connected by the same stretch of road
    Neglected the truth and refused to grow old
    It started a stream but then the levee fell
    When the rainmaker had some extra sends to sell

    I just wanna drink 'til I'm not thirsty
    I just wanna sleep 'til I'm not tired
    I just wanna drive 'til I run out of highway
    Into the purple sky

    Well, I just thought I'd call and see what's going on
    Did the hills all flatten out since I've been gone?
    Are the fields all painted up in red and blue?
    Are you thinking of me the times I'm thinking of you?

    I just wanna drink 'til I'm not thirsty
    I just wanna sleep 'til I'm not tired
    I just wanna drive 'til I run out of highway
    Into the purple sky

    But if I'm gonna live until I'm 50
    I'm gonna need you by my side
    'Cause I don't wanna dance without you with me
    Into the purple sky

    Livin' like a soulless pirate somewhere lost at sea
    Wondering if I ever make it home, will you come back to me
    Could we dream up a reason for a rendezvous?
    I'm back in town and I got nothing to do
    We could drive all day with the top let down
    We could stay in tonight or we could wreck this town

    I just wanna drink 'til I'm not thirsty
    I just wanna sleep 'til I'm not tired
    I just wanna drive 'til I run out of highway
    Into the purple sky

    But if I'm gonna live until I'm 50
    I'm gonna need you by my side
    'Cause I don't wanna dance without you with me
    Into the purple sky

    Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh, huh, huh
    Into the purple sky
    Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh, huh, huh
    Into the purple sky
    Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh, huh, huh
    Into the purple sky
    Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh, huh, huh
    Into the purple sky
    Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh, huh, huh
