Lyle Lovett - Highway Kind Lyrics

My days they are the highway kind
They only come to leave
But the leaving I don't mind
It's the coming that I crave
Pour the sun upon the ground
Stand to throw a shadow
Watch it grow into the night
And fill the spinning sky

Time among the pine trees
It felt like breath of air
Usually I just walk these streets
And tell myself to care
Sometimes I believe me
Sometimes I don't hear
Sometimes the shape I'm in
Won't let me go

I don't know too much for truth
But my heart knows how to pound
My legs know how to love someone
My voice knows how to sound
It's a shame that it's not enough
It's a shame that it is a shame
Follow the circle down
Where would you be

You're the only one I want
I've never heard your name
Let's hope we meet someday
If we don't it's all the same
And I'll meet the ones between us
And be thinking about you
And all the places I have seen
And why you were not there

Lyle Lovett Highway Kind Comments

    The perverbial "ships passing in the night" song.
    I've had this album for years and love every song, and the step into this house song is me.
    Yet, I've has dreams like this song states. Where, I am traveling in a far-away place knowing my destiny is to meet with someone to be my forever person and... we pass in a huge crowd after making eye contact and were swept away... Never to meet again.
    I awaken saddened as though it were an actual event. And I wonder sometimes about fate and this reaccuring dream.
    Finally, a song was made about it and still I wonder and hope.

    check out Lyle's Tiny Desk Concerts on NPR - he is a funny man - respect to TVZ - now I'll point you in the Direction of Nick Drake...... 'when hugged, never be the first to let go' : P

    really nice

  4. Brinksman

    There's such a purity, a clarity, to what Lyle does with this. Penetrating. This entire album (Step Inside This House) showcases musicianship and production of the highest quality.

    Beautiful, Townes Van Zandt would be proud.
