You and me on a warm summer night Listen to the airplanes fly Smell the leaves burning beyond This must be where we belong This must be where we belong I take a drink and I look at you We talk about the things that we've been through What a lovely one you are In the company of stars In the company of stars You're my flower in the springtime You're my singer of songs Did we fly so high just to fall so far Just to pick up the pieces and move on And our little world spins round and round And emptiness abounds Next to this, we're meaningless But love makes us bigger than we sound Bigger than we sound You're my flower in the springtime You're my dreamer of dreams And our love was real But it was never perfect Like a picture in a magazine And the air cuts through us like a knife Takes away the strife in our lives What we feel is who we are In the company of stars In the company of stars Now I'm walking on the train tracks Oh I'm trying to find a way back I didn't come this far just to turn back now Just to quit on you and go home

Road Trip 04:06
A roadside motel with a neon sign Inside the TVs are black and white And the highway sings a lonesome song About people who are going, going, gone We're on a road trip, drive across the country Stop in every small town, see what we see Onto the byway, into the valley Over the mountains, down to the city Inside a truck stop where the tired wait For a shower and a hot plate And in the place a hundred years ago Arapahoe hunted buffalo Open window road never ending Hand floating mind pretending And the thoughts in your heart that you've been keeping Set free while the others in the car are sleeping I'm flying higher than I ever did before But still the demons waiting at my front door When I'm driving, let it all slip away Into the red, the red sun Save it for another day I'm on a road trip drive across the country Stop in every small town see what we see Onto the byway into the valley Over the mountains down to the city

You drove a borrowed truck To the confluence of bad and luck As there was some business that you had there You know we start as one A river that's flowing in the sun And then comes a waterfall And it separates us all But the sky will open up And the birds will fly And it begins to rain Though the sun still shines When the world doesn't turn like you want it to And you lie in the bed that you made Don't give it up, don't turn it in When the bright line starts to fade When the bright line starts to fade And a stranger passed you by His whole life's story in his eyes And he stopped to give his name And to see that you were fine Like water drops we are All alone, together as we fall And when we land we find ourselves Back where we began The sky will open up And the birds will fly And it begins to rain Though the sun still shines When the world doesn't turn like you want it to And you lie in the bed that you made Don't give it up Don't turn it in When the bright line starts to fade When the bright line starts to fade When the bright line starts to fade When the bright line starts to fade

about

"Live at the Mary Miller" is The Moonlit Wild's first album, a 3-song EP recorded live in Lafayette, Colorado's beautiful Mary Miller Theater, a 100-year-old church turned performance space. Videos for all 3 songs were filmed and recorded by Chris Wiest of Kettle Whistle Media (and member of Woodbelly, winners of 2018 Telluride Bluegrass Festival). The result is a tapestry of Americana and folk, weaving together life's joy and pain and the beauty of an old fashioned road trip.
