    I think about that day
    I left him at a Greyhound station
    West of Santa Fé

    We were seventeen, but he was sweet and it was true
    Still I did what I had to do
    'Cause I just knew

    Summer Sunday nights
    We'd sink into our seats
    Right as they dimmed out all the lights
    A Technicolor world made out of music and machine
    It called me to be on that screen
    And live inside each scene

    Without a nickel to my name
    Hopped a bus, here I came
    Could be brave or just insane

    We'll have to see

    'Cause maybe in that sleepy town
    He'll sit one day, the lights are down
    He'll see my face and think of how
    He used to know me

    Climb these hills
    I'm reaching for the heights
    And chasing all the lights that shine (lights that shine)
    And when they let you down (it's another day of)
    You'll get up off the ground (it's another day of)
    'Cause morning rolls around
    And it's another day of sun

    I hear 'em every day
    The rhythms in the canyons
    That'll never fade away
    The ballads in the barrooms
    Left by those who came before
    They say "you gotta want it more"
    So I bang on every door

    And even when the answer's "no"
    Or when my money's running low
    The dusty mic and neon glow
    Are all I need

    And someday as I sing my song
    A small-town kid'll come along

    That'll be the thing to push him on and go, go

    Climb these hills, I'm reaching for the heights
    And chasing all the lights that shine (lights that shine)
    And when they let you down (it's another day of)
    You'll get up off the ground (it's another day of)
    'Cause morning rolls around
    And it's another day of sun

    And when they let you down
    The morning rolls around

    It's another day of sun (oh)
    It's another day of sun (oh)
    It's another day of sun (sun, sun, sun, sun)
    It's just another day of sun (oh)
    Just another day of sun (oh)
    It's another day of sun (sun)
    Another day has just begun (oh)
    It's another day of sun
