I Was There - Lyrics

I sit and watch them people come and go
The tiredness of the radio, playing songs i barely know
She walks and talks and feels a little like a drama queen
Finest i have ever seen, and her name is codeine

I feel the warm air, and the scent of kerosene is all you got
And in my dreams i hold her and tag along till it all burns

Cause i was there
In the darkness we brought to the mountains of love
That we danced around then lost
In the middle of a song that you never knew
Never knew would last
Like a blast out of the past
Comes along and travels fast

Been around the town out on parole
The sadness of the radio in broken sounds and rigmaroles
Then she comes and tells me she belongs
All that's left to do is done, i can hear it in your song

Drive through the hill view,
where the scent of kerosene is all you got
And in my dreams i hold her and tag along till it all burns

Cause i was there
In the darkness we brought to the mountains of love
That we danced around then lost
In the middle of a song that you never knew
Never knew would last
Like a blast out of the past
Comes along and travels fast
Travels fast and never

Drive around the town, turn it upside down
Used to watch the river flow, now we got nowhere to go
Rainbows and shadows grown-up and growing long
Up where you belong
Steer the wheel, raw deal
The engine hauls, the asphalt reels
Shoot up to the moon and drive it through

Cause i was there
In the darkness we brought to the mountains of love
That we danced around then lost
In the middle of a song that you never knew
Never knew would last
Like a blast out of the past
Comes along and travel fast
Comes along and travel fast
