Lyrics

Outside The Sunrise by Ileana Burdine

Black sea of flat land
Black billboards against the rising sun
Props silhouetted on a stage
Pale yellow in every direction
Just outside the border
Just outside the sunrise, just outside of me
Looking at my actions like a stranger
No idea how he's feeling

A traveler on the freeway
Road stretched long with possibilities
And none will comfort me

I would justify
I tried to run to escape my anger
With every step I pushed hard against the ground
To push me away from here
My chest on fire, I was tired
I was not fast enough
Couldn't breathe so I drove away
The one I love

A traveler on the freeway
Road stretched long with possibilities
And none will comfort me

Nearly across the border
Into another state of mind
Won't look over my shoulder
To see what I've left behind

A traveler on the freeway
Road stretched long with possibilities
And none will comfort me
And none will comfort me
And none will comfort me
