chicago lyrics – mat kearney

meet me in chicago, down by the water line
step across the gull coast, to my heart into your wine
maybe cincinnatti, with the trip in the morning light
step across the branches i will follow you over the rhine

and it takes one to know one that’s what they always said
waited for the dawn and i’ve waited for the day
oh i’m coming on and i’m willing to pray
on a wide open road
on and on and the lights come and go
and everything i might not even know what is the distance
on through the ristance
singing ahh ah ah ahh ah, ahh ah ah ahh ah

meet me in portland, roads here and the summer light
see you in the evergreens i will catch you down on the northeast side
maybe san diego, moon light at the lowest tide
see you in a sh*r*line breaker, stepping over my makers line

and it takes one to know one that’s what they always said
waited for the dawn and i’ve waited for the day
oh i’m coming on and i’m willing to pray
step in through haze one more day
on a wide open road
on and on and the lights come and go
and everything i might not even know what is the distance
on through the ristance
singing ahh ah ah ahh ah, ahh ah ah ahh ah

you met me on the back streets
right there at the end of the line
where a spark turns into fire
where a tear turns into life

and it takes one to know one that’s what they always said
waited for the dawn and i’ve waited for the day
oh i’m coming on and i’m willing to pray
step in through haze one more day
on a wide open road
on and on and the lights come and go
and everything i might not even know what is the distance
on through the ristance
wondering why open road
on and on and the lights come and go
and everything i might not even know what is the distance
on through the ristance
singing ahh ah ah ahh ah, ahh ah ah ahh ah, ahh ah ah ahh ah, ahh ah ah ahh ah

meet me in chicago, down by the water line
step across the gull coast, step into this heart of mine
