Desert night under lonely stars
Crusing down the highway takes me farther from home
Whiskey and regret...
Neither can erase the fact that I have done wrong
So now I?m on the run, the law is on my trail
Let down the only girl that ever seemed to be the one for me
So now I wander alone
Alone in a cheap motel room
Praying to the Lord above
Burden of the past rests so heavy on my shoulders
My conscience carries the weight of blood
Cigarette smoke and shadow
A neon cactus in the night
Did what I did because I thought that I had no choice,
But there?s always another way
I look to the moon and stars,
Somewhere underneath them she?s there
I never even spoke to her, the words of love I hid in my heart
If she heard them now would she still care?
Wonder if she?s thinking of me?
Does she hate me for what I?ve done?
How I wish that I could change everything and go back
Now that my last chance is gone, it?s gone
Moon, will you tell her for me,
I?m sorry for all the trouble that I?ve caused
If only I could find a way to return to her someday,
For I long to hold her in my arms
But I fear that I?m not long for this world,
Because I will not go out without a fight
I?m running forever
If they should catch me...
One last thought of her before my gun is fired....
