Lyrics

Nothing But Sky
(Drew AllisonĀ©2002 ASCAP)

guess I know why I spend my time
just wishing I was with you
cause it's been years I've been out here
where distance grows within you
-and there's void here in my night as big as Texas - I just miss you

nothing but sky
ahead of me
another lone star memory
nothing but sky
until I die
I'll sing this homesick lullaby

I dont know how I live without
all that I love about you
cause in your sunsets are the miles
that separate me from you
-and there's a hole here in my heart- I need to find the eyes to see you

nothing but sky
ahead of me
this road knows where its taking me
nothing but sky
all I can see
another lone star memory

nothing but sky
over me
just a homesick memory
nothing but sky
until I die
I'll sing this lonesome lullaby

nothing but sky
ahead of me
I'll find the time and learn to see
nothing but sky
without wires
I'm going home Texas style
