about

About 2 years into our married life we took a trip to East Texas to perform at a wedding. Amanda was about 6 months pregnant and very sick. At one in the morning, we were lost, almost out of gas, and praying to find a small motel to stay for the night. With $50 dollars in our pockets and nothing but each other, we finally saw a light in the distance that blinked "vacancy." As we lay down on the bed and began to drift off, we knew all we needed at that moment was each other. We would face tomorrow and it's trouble together, but for now, we were safe here tonight.

lyrics

VERSE1:
Driving down old highway 59.
Just two lost kids along for the ride.
Looking for the first welcoming light.
One room and one prayer and one new love tonight.

VERSE2:
I gave you my heart and a ten-dollar ring.
And all of the love songs that I could sing.
Our love was young and our love was fast.
Chasing the future and running from the past.

CHORUS:
So hold me close, here in the dark.
Let me feel your breath and your beating heart
And this life will be over in the blink of an eye
But while the world is raging outside
We’re safe here tonight.

VERSE3:
There will be days when we both feel lost,
When it seems like love isn’t worth what it’s cost
But you are my constant, my end from the start
Yes you are the tether to this gypsy heart.

CHORUS:
So hold me close, here in the dark.
Let me feel your breath and your beating heart
And this life will be over in the blink of an eye
But while the world is raging outside
We’re safe here tonight.
