lyrics

There's a famine that is spreading,
And there ain't no end in sight,
And if you feel it closing in,
Don't go towards the light,
I took a job in Big Spring,
Left my home up north,
Working in the same fields,
My pa worked as a boy,
They say oil is the thing,
That'll fill your hands with gold,
But what's the joy in riches,
When the waste land is your home?

Forgiveness will sustain you,
And the dollars will provide,
But there ain't no use in running,
From your conscience you can't hide,
Just like "sorry" is just a word,
If nothing is ever done,
And love is just a fairytale,
If you never find someone,
I see lightning in the distance,
And there's oil on my hands,
But I'll soon leave this living,
And give you all I have.

Let's make up for time, that wasn't so well spent,
Let's make up for love that's gone, and won't be here again.

There's a girl back in El Paso,
Dreaming of me tonight,
And California dreams a dream,
The desert calls a lie,
Go ahead drive through Western Texas,
And then you just might know,
How it really feels,
To truly be alone,
But I won't go back to Clovis,
And hear the coyotes cry,
The place where I was born,
And where my brother Taylor died.

Now the famine keeps on spreading,
But I'm leaving here tonight,
I'll be back home in El Paso,
Before the morning's light,
But sweet Jesus won't you guide me,
I can't see through the rain,
For you I fought back evil,
So won't you help me shake the pain,
And still I told that coward Satan,
"You'd best hide when I come back,"
We both met when we were kids,
But only I became a man.

And it's good to see you, see you again
It's good to see you, my old friend.

Let's make up for time, that wasn't so well spent,
Let's make up for love that's gone, and won't be here again.

Let's make up for time, that wasn't so well spent,
Let's make up for love that's gone, and won't be here again.
