lyrics

Long road to Michigan.
We lost our way, lost our faith,
But found our heart again, in the glove compartment.
Endless stretch of highway and roadside cafe’s,
We found your saviour on his very best behaviour,
In the back, stocking salt and pepper shakers.

God fearing country,
Found in long forgotten corners, and washed out to the sea.

Same old song, same old story, same old streets, same old poetry,
Same old snow, same old broken, same old.
Those songs you sing to us, they turn to lovely dust,
When they leave your lips, adorn mine with a dusty kiss.

Hush now sweet child.
Close your eyes, rest your head, this will go away, for awhile.
Care for your own on the shores of the big water,
Or risk loneliness and a sudden departure.

God fearing country
found in long forgotten corners, and washed out to the sea.

Same old song, same old story, same old streets, same old poetry,
Same old snow, same old broken, same old.
Those songs you sing to us, they turn to lovely dust,
When they leave your lips, adorn mine with a dusty kiss.
We'll be gone before we are missing,
From the lonely streets of Michigan
