Wild Flowers and love letter vows were wilting in the sun
Should have died from my wounded pride
As she held the smoking gun
I swore I'd never fall in love with her
But the stars were aligned
On this easy heart of mine
I've been out here running for cover

There's a ghost and a girl
And they found me again
On a lost highway
Through this unforgiving land
Love is a ghost and sadness a girl
I'm bound to fall off the end of the world

I broke down in a motel room 3 days out of Jamestown
Under whiskey and a memory
She danced in wearing a white wedding gown
I swore I'd never feel her skin again
But we were sweating and shaking
From the love we were making
Sunrise she was gone again

These are haunting days
At a roadside pawn shop I traded in her ring
For a piece of someone else's past
