lyrics.

quiet hours

From Boulder to Oblivia

I have been down the length of that old railroad track

From Boulder to Oblivia

And I know in my heart I must never never go back

Nothing from nothing can return

 

There’s been times in my life when I looked up to the great big sky

For answers to all my questions, but when I look into a sky

Where there’s no one such thing as I

Nothing from nothing can return

 

Surely someone, somewhere, somehow, so long ago

Said something, did something, put me out here on this road

But who they are and what they’ve done, it don’t much matter anymore

Nothing from nothing can return

 

There’s been times in my life ….

 

I’ve seen how that lands spreads out almost in any direction

From Boulder to Oblivia

And I followed that black bird flying till she was swallowed right up by the sky

Nothing from nothing can return

 

There’s been times in my life…

 

For such a long long time there were so many things that could not be said

And they swirled around like a locked up army in my head

But like phantoms of the night these things dissolve in the clear clear light

Nothing from nothing can return

 

There’s been times in my life when I looked up to the great big sky

For answers to all my questions, but when I look into a sky

Where there’s no one such thing as I

Nothing from nothing can return
