Accustomed to the Dark
Theresa Andersson / Don Cook / John Barlow Jarvis

On a dusty farm-to-market road
Eighteen miles from Jericho
About a million more to go
Before I sleep again
Out on Highway 49
A moon fell from the Texas sky
What a lonely place to say goodbye
To no one but the wind

Silent light, lonely night
Haunted by your fading light
Scarlet moon, starless sky,
I guess I'll have to find my way by heart
So I can grow accustomed to the dark

A busted billboard sign ahead
Reminds me of something you said
And the tape is running through my head
It tears me up inside
Oh I wish I was a midnight train
Blazing across the Pontchartrain
Maybe then I'd lose this pain
That's killing me tonight
