Mojave Rain

The Way It Was

I drove through the desert last night
I carried the weight of our last fight
Elvis singing "Don't Be Cruel"
And I wonder if you feel it too
It's like we're going under
Somewhere outside the lonely Esmeralda County line
The question of my heart came to my mind

If I go on with you (by my side)
Can it be the way it was when we met?
Did you forget all about those golden nights?

Maybe a thief stole your heart
Or maybe we just drifted apart
I remember driving
In my daddy's car to the airfield
Blanket on the hood
Backs against the windshield
Back then this thing was running on momentum, love and trust
That paradise is buried in the dust

If I go on with you (by my side)
Can it be the way it was when we met?
Did you forget all about those golden nights?

All of our plans have fallen through
Sometimes a dream it don't come true

Darling, darling!

If we go on can it be
The way it was when we met?
Did you forget all about them golden nights?

If I go on with you (by my side)
Can it be the way it was, my heart is true
Girl, it's just you I'm thinking of
Can it be the way it was?

Maybe a thief stole your heart
