lyrics

From Boulder to Oblivia​

I have been down the length of that old railroad track
From Boulder to Oblivia
And I know in my heart I must never never go back
Nothing from nothing can return

There’s been times in my life when I looked up to the great big sky
For answers to all my questions, but when I look into a sky
Where there’s no one such thing as I
Nothing from nothing can return

Surely someone, somewhere, somehow, so long ago
Said something, did something, put me out here on this road
But who they are and what they’ve done, it don’t much matter anymore
Nothing from nothing can return

There’s been times in my life ….

I’ve seen how that lands spreads out almost in any direction
From Boulder to Oblivia
And I followed that black bird flying till she was swallowed right up by the sky
Nothing from nothing can return

There’s been times in my life…

For such a long long time there were so many things that could not be said
And they swirled around like a locked up army in my head
But like phantoms of the night these things dissolve in the clear clear light
Nothing from nothing can return

There’s been times in my life when I looked up to the great big sky
For answers to all my questions, but when I look into a sky
Where there’s no one such thing as I
Nothing from nothing can return
