Verse/Refrain 1
It was raining in Albuquerque
On the longest night of the year.
Danger was always lurking
In the clear mountain atmosphere
You were always such a long way away,
Weren't you, dear?

Chorus 1
Together alone, we’re just hitchhiking the same empty road.
Together alone, no matter how close, the space swallows us both.
Together alone.

Verse/Refrain 2
Cardboard was blowing on the highway
Like so many dried up tears
As if all our trash could just fly away
On the restless winds of the years.
You were always somehow running, running,
Weren't you, dear?

Chorus 2
Together alone, we’re just hitchhiking the same empty road.
Together alone, no matter how close, the space swallows us both.

Bridge
How do I get through?
How do I find you?

Chorus 3 (half down) / Chorus 4
Together alone, we’re just hitchhiking the same empty road.
Together alone, no matter how close, the space swallows us both.
Together alone, we’re just hitchhiking the same empty road.
Together alone, no matter how close, the space swallows us both.
Together alone.

Verse/Refrain 1 - half repeat
It was raining in Albuquerque
On the longest day of the year.
You were always such a long way away,
Weren't you, dear?

Verse 1
You're stuff that dreams are made of.
I don't deserve this tradeoff.
Magical....... Mystical.
I'm starting to feel like you might be

Chorus 1
Mythical. Mythical.
You're too good to be real.
I think maybe you're mythical.
Mythical, yeah.

Verse 2
You're all I ever wanted.
So right my heart feels haunted.
Inexplicable. Fictional.
I'm starting to feel like you might be

Chorus 2
Mythical. Mythical.
You're too good to be real.
I think maybe you're mythical.
Mythical, yeah.

Bridge
I know that you're very much flesh and blood.
But I know that you rush right through me like a flood.
Stories end. Where are you when I wake?

Chorus 3 (down variation)
Mythical. Mythical.
Mythical. Mythical.
Mythical, mythical, yeah, yeah.

Chorus 4
Mythical. Mythical.
You're too good to be real.
I think maybe you're mythical.
Mythical, yeah.

Verse 1
When the miles stretch between us like taffy,
And I've lost the echoes of us laughing,
When you're out of my sight, babe, I worry.
You know I find life without you unnerving.

Prechorus 1
Don't you dream that I've forgotten.

Chorus 1
You're heavy on my mind,
I think about you all the time.
It's your face in the moon that I find.
You're heavy on my mind,
As sure as the stars shine,
This night air leaves you heavy, heavy on my mind.

Verse 2
When you're as close as the next pillow over,
I can't unravel the nightmares you've woven.
The clouds drift up on the words that you murmur.
I'm falling under the weight of the burden.

Prechorus 2
Don't you dream that I've forgotten.

Chorus 2
You're heavy on my mind,
I think about you all the time.
It's your face in the moon that I find.
You're heavy on my mind,
As sure as the stars shine,
This night air leaves you heavy, heavy on my mind.

Chorus 3 x 2
You're heavy on my mind,
I think about you all the time.
It's your face in the moon that I find.
You're heavy on my mind,
As sure as the stars shine,
This night air leaves you heavy, heavy on my mind.
