First steps out of the cold
Riding out here without someone to hold
If I had everything I still wanted more
So I'm leaving it behind be the first one to go

Last night I slept on the train
Dreams as calm as the plains
Wish I could exist and not feel anything
Like out here it's only flat earth for days

Woken up by the Prairie sunrise
Eyes wide open and the ice just cracked
Played out of memories I didn't realize
My heart was frozen over like the train tracks

Out here with nowhere to go
Follow the rails til they get me home
Suddenly beams in my eyes came on
Tracing the darkness from my window

Last night I felt no pain
Through the snow and through the rain
Wish I'd see your face when it's time for bed
I thought I'd gotten used to this loneliness

Woken up by the Prairie sunrise
Eyes wide open and the ice just cracked
Played out of memories I didn't realize
My hear was frozen over like the train tracks
