  1. Lone Rider

From the recording Connections

Maria Scherer Wilson - Violoncello

Lyrics

Driving down this road again
with a screen of dust behind me
I’ll keep running ’til no one ever finds me
My heart is trailing a few paces back
And it can stay there ’til it don’t feel no more
The Lone Rider slowly makes his way through town
Everybody stares at him as he smoothly looks around
They all have visions of being free and being wild
As they go back to their warm homes with their loved ones
I don’t wanna be a desperado I don’t wanna make it alone
Camouflage my heart and be someone that nobody knows
All your life you fight your way to the top
One day you look down and everybody’s looking up
They all adore you even though they do not know you
Your intimacy staggers
You’re a misfit in your personal matters
I don’t wanna be a desperado I don’t wanna make it alone
Camouflage my heart and be someone that nobody knows
I stop and look back as the dust settles down
I see my beaten heart laying on the ground
A trail of pieces as far as I can see
I pick it up and hold it close to me
I’m going back to the ones that love me
“Cause I don’t wanna be a desperado
I don’t wanna make it alone
Camouflage my heart and be someone that nobody knows
I don’t wanna be a causeless rebel I don’t wanna make it alone
Cauterize my heart and be someone I don’t even know
