Mojave Rain

Jacksonville

Slow down your mind
Fill the unknown spaces
With truth and lies
If you can find the time
Time seems so slow
Now we're stuck here asking
Where did it go?
And what are we here for?

There we were
Looking out some country window
And although we had our problems
We were fine

The sky was blue
And the night was all I wanted
Let me be your comet
I will fly

Summertime's so sweet
Luxuries of childhood were on our feet
In the sun sun sun
So baby run run run
Baby run run run
Games will be portrayed

There we were
Looking out some country window
And although we had our problems
We were fine

The sky was blue
And the night was all I wanted
Let me be your comet
I will fly

The sky was blue
And the night was all I wanted
Let me be your comet
I will fly

I've been to Jacksonville
I've been to Monterrey
I've felt a mother's love
I've seen the colors change
I cried a million tears
I caused a million more
I've been to Jacksonville

There we were
Looking out some country window
And although we had our problems
We were fine
