If I ventured in the slipstream
Between the viaducts of your dream
Where immobile steel rims crack
And the ditch in the backroads stop

Could you find me?
Would you kiss-a my eyes?
To lay me down
In silence easy
To be born again
To be born again

From the far side of the ocean
If I put the wheels in motion
And I stand with my arms behind me
And I’m pushin' on the door

Could you find me?
Would you kiss-a my eyes?
To lay me down
In silence easy
To be born again
To be born again

There you go
Standin' with the look of avarice
Talkin' to Huddie Ledbetter
Showin' pictures on the wall
Whisperin' in the hall
And pointin' a finger at me
There you go, there you go
Standin' in the sun darlin'
With your arms behind you
And your eyes before
There you go

Takin' good care of your boy
Seein' that he’s got clean clothes
Puttin' on his little red shoes
I see you know he’s got clean clothes
A-puttin' on his little red shoes
A-pointin' a finger at me

And here I am standing in your sad arrest
Trying to do my very best
Lookin' straight at you
Comin' through, darlin'
Yeah, yeah, yeah

If I ventured in the slipstream
Between the viaducts of your dreams
Where immobile steel rims crack
And the ditch in the backroads stop

Could you find me?
Would you kiss-a my eyes?
Lay me down
In silence easy

To be born again
To be born again
To be born again
To be born again

In another world, darlin'
In another world
In another time
Got a home on high

Ain’t nothing but a stranger in this world
I’m nothing but a stranger in this world
I got a home on high
In another land
So far away
So far away

Way up in the heaven
Way up in the heaven
Way up in the heaven
Way up in the heaven

In another time
In another place
In another time
In another place
Ooh, yeah, mmm

In a time, haha
In another place
In a time
In another place
In another face
