Annalee

from Fugitives

Annalee
I can hear these wheels
Beneath me as they
Whisper your name
Annalee
All the billboards passing by me
Show your face
Just like a movie
Every frame I see you
Smiling back at me
Thank you for this
Perfect picture

Annalee
Do you notice how the
Highway wires rise and fall
As they dance by my window
In their sweet and even rhythm
I recall your sigh
And my surprise
To find myself in love
Now only if the road would let me
Be where I want to
Be when I want to
Be - be with Annalee

Hundred miles through the
Pouring rain Annalee
Coming down so thick
I could barely see your face
The rain turns to snow
Many miles to go
No one on this road but me
Me and my memory
Of Annalee

Through the pouring rain
Coming down in sheets
So thick
The rain turned to snow
Many miles to go
No one on this road but me
Me and my memory...
Annalee all the city lights
Are roses by the midnight moon
I could swear that I saw
Your face among them
So I asked them as we flew

Across the nighttime sky
How to make love stay
Knowing they would never
Say it me clearly
What I want to
Hear when I want to
Be - be with
Annalee
