Flatrock

lyrics

He pulled the car to the side of the road
And he stepped from behind the wheel.
He could see her face in the tail lights red glow
As she walked off into the desert.

(CHORUS)
And I know that those flat rocks hold heat,
Long after the sun has gone,
And I know those flat rocks hold heat,
Long into the darkening night.

She told him of her family,
And a farm somewhere in Idaho,
Where the wolves run lank-legged,
Through the drifts of waist-deep snow.
And they watch from the fringes,
With their yellow slivered almond eyes,
As you and I struggle simply,
Only just to pass on by...

REPEAT (CHORUS)
And I know that those flat rocks hold heat,
Long after the sun has gone,
And I know those flat rocks hold heat,
Long into the darkening night.

And no one left remembers
Save for the snowy owl
He sits the branches, waiting now,
He knows winter is coming soon anyhow...

REPEAT (CHORUS)
