Colorado

Colorado
By Jimmy Rankin

4000 miles I wandered out there for a drop of love
Remember we soared like the doves
Now we are strangers
So I stumbled back home like a stone
Once I stood straight and tall
These days I’m building walls
Surrounded by danger

In Colorado
Don’t tell me what I know about life itself
In Colorado
Wasn’t too long ago
Took all of your letters down
Passed bits of your heart around
Placed them back safe and sound
Back on the lover’s shelf

Buddha and Jesus and Gandhi
The girl sitting next to me
All say the same you see
Let’s talk about love

Look at me pour out my soul
In some others kitchen now
You got what you wanted somehow
You wanted blood

In Colorado
Don’t tell me what I know about life itself
In Colorado
Wasn’t too long ago
Took all of your letters down
Passed bits of your heart around
Placed them back safe and sound
Back on the lover’s shelf

Your unconscious dreams like mythical dreams
Must appeal to me
What lies deep below in the depths of your soul
Is what I fail to see

It’s all a mystery
It’s all a mystery

In Colorado
Don’t tell me what I know about life itself
In Colorado
It wasn’t too long ago
Took all of your letters down
Passed bits of your heart around
Placed them back safe and sound
Back on the lover’s shelf
