(Jim Bruno)

Keep your hat on your head
Keep your eyes on the road
Always follow your heart
Or your heart will explode

Well it's never easy
And never that clear
When you howl at the moon
And the moon doesn't hear

We weren't meant to discover and never will know
Why the ones that we love disappear like the snow
But I know in the end
It's only a matter of time

Always cover your tracks
And lean into the wind
There's no turning back
And there's no giving in

Oh the anger comes easy
It cuts like a whip
But don't let it in
Or it might get a grip

It can shake you and break you and take you away
From the ones that you need for the rest of your days
And I know in the end
It's only a matter of time

Till we sing this song together
Till the storm we share is weathered

If your vision is keen
And your senses are sharp
You can keep it together
And not fall apart

Don't stop for a second
Don't think of the cost
See what you've got
Don't see what you've lost

One day they were here
And the next they were gone
But they're still in our hearts
And they're still in this song

And I know in the end
It's only a matter of time
