Open Road Summer


When May fades into June

and the days stretch ahead of us

like shadows on a warm summer night


When the breeze lifts the branches,

when the sunlight tells a story

I’ll meet you where the pavement ends


Just an open road,

a beautiful day,

feeling like we can’t lose


When the trees come to expect us

coming out the screen door every day,

and the winter frosts are all worth it


When we’re running forever

through cornfields and memories,

I’ll meet you at the edge of the world


We can leap off the tallest mountains,

run out of breath, rush the hay bales

and fall in love again and again and again


Just an open road summer,

a beautiful day,

feeling like we can’t lose
