1.
There goes a traveling man
Loving L.A. like a one night stand
It's hard to get there then have to leave the thrills
So he's freezing his heart out
With hundred dollar bills
There's an open microphone
At a club down the street
His old guitar wearing new strings
The traveler waits to be seen
Adrift with his clouds
Aloft in his dreams
CHORUS
Taking his love, taking it backstage
Finding his love, finding it backstage
Making his love, making it backstage

2.
City stories, highways and farms
Every other tune
Is a leaving song
Broken teeth and golden hearts
With twenty years taped to his guitar
He wears his songs like a uniform
And visit the cities
Like they are his children
Asleep in his van
Aloft in his dreams
CHORUS
He's dreaming of love, dreaming it backstage
Taking his love, taking it backstage
Making his love, making it backstage
