Evergreen - Geoff Bartley

    A dog barks down the alley and I'm lying here awake
    and a slow train rumbles through this punchdrunk town
    the summer has been hot,
    and tonight is pretty bad
    and I can feel the dead world trying to pull me down

    When your name is mentioned in passing conversation
    I act like I've got something in my eye
    You loved me in the winter, and you left me in the spring
    now everything I touch is burned and dry --I'd like to see it all

    All Evergreen!

    Me bed is so damn empty, I leave the radio on all night
    but I'd love to hear your breathing in my ear
    I have watched in fascination the erosion of my kindness
    Like I've watched this purest winter disappear --I'd like to see it all

    [Repeat Chorus]

    But a dog barks down the alley, and I'm lying here awake
    And an idiot wind blows up across the miles
    there are grasses on the prairies pushing up like new bones
    and somewhere out there horses still run wild --I'd like to see it all

    [Repeat Chorus]
