Lyrics

My pickup truck on Highway Z
Cooper turns to Boone
400 Horses running free
on a summer afternoon
Storm clouds assemble
like the faithful to a bell
soon enough I'll tremble
but right now all is well

But looks can be deceiving
Signs can be misread
You think that trouble's leaving
But its coming home instead

My Heart is overflowing
today will be the day
together we'll be going
and I practice what to say
I can almost feel your presence
I feel risen from the dead
every slat of picket fence
counts the seconds in my head

But looks can be deceiving
Signs can be misread
You think that trouble's leaving
But its coming home instead

I wonder if a diamond shines
deep within its case
I fight to stay between the lines
On the road out of this place
I thought that I could trust my sight
It seemed so clear to me
but your eyes only take in light
its your mind makes what you see

But looks can be deceiving
Signs can be misread
You think that trouble's leaving
But its coming home instead

Very original sounding tune. I liked the use of the different instruments that sort of had the lead in the different sections of the song. The singer has a very real feel and adds to the appeal of this one.
