Alkali Flats

from by Valyermo



I'll meet you at the mountain's edge
where the trailhead meets the road
You know the place like you know my heart
They're laid out just the same
I'll take you into the canyon
by a path we used to roam
The desert air is friendly there
But I can't recall the name

Hey, can we make it til the sunrise?
or do we cut our loss, and go our separate ways
a change of heart, caught me surprise
The promises you made just wash away/The promises you break, I should walk away.

Walk with me through the silence
follow me through the desert night
Alkali flats are calling
Is it far too late to set this right?
