Rider From Nowhere

Feat. America

Verse 1

This territory I have crossed don't even have a name
So while the stranger could get lost, but pretty just the same
I don't have much of anything; no home, no child, no wife
I only own the open rain and what's left of my life

Verse 2

Can I buy a ticket with my solitude in a different past?
Write a happy ending to a story that might last
'Cause time is catchin' up with me and gainin' on me fast
And here I am with nothin' hidin' up my sleeve

Chorus

I'm a rider from nowhere
With no compass and no guide
I am carried by the wind, I'm a trade that has no end
With no partner by my side
Just a rider from nowhere
And no other man's concern
Just a shadow in the trees, shapeless fading by the grease
Past the point of no return

Verse 3

I can't reclaim a single breath of life or change a single spot
I can't devise some cheap disguise, be somethin' that I'm not
But still I just might save my life with one last chance lucky shot
So here I am, a drifter dreamin' in my tracks

Chorus

Just a rider from nowhere
I have ridden off the map
Or in a border you can draw, I am far beyond it all
Or the jaws of any track
Just a rider from nowhere
With a whole lot left to learn
And I'd like to be your friend, but I'm from nowhere like the wind
And to nowhere I'll return
And I'd like to be your friend, but I'm from nowhere like the wind
And to nowhere I'll return
And I wanna be your friend, but I'm from nowhere like the wind
And to nowhere I'll return
