I don't wanna hear a love song
I got on this aer'plane just to fly
I know there's life below me
But all that you can show me
Is the prairie and the sky

I don't wanna hear a sad story
Filled with heartbreak and desire
The last time I felt like this
I was in the wilderness
And the canyon was on fire

And I stood on the mountain
In the night and I watched it burn
I watched it burn, God, I watched it burn

I would rock my soul
In the bosom of Abraham
I would hold my life
In his saving grace

I would walk all the way
From Boulder to Birmingham
If I thought I could see
Just see your face, oh

Well, you really got me this time, you got me this time
And the hardest part is knowing that I survived
And I've come to listen to the sounds of the trucks
As they moved out on Highway 95

And pretending it's the ocean
Coming down to wash me clear
To wash me clear
If you know what I mean

I would rock my soul
In the bosom of Abraham
I would hold my life
In a saving grace

I would walk all the way
From Boulder to Birmingham
If I thought I could see
Just see your face

I would walk all the way
From Boulder to Birmingham
If I thought I could see
Just see your face, ooh, ohh
