Lyrics - Washed Away

Back

We live out here in the desert

Where time stands still

In the face of our foolish pride

We trade our love for ambition

And tell each other

We'll get it all back in time

But time moves on like a river

Soon leaves us all behind

Like a summer rain

It all gets washed away

Round and round and round we go

Where it stops don't no one know

Find a love you better let them know

Before you both get washed away

I watch the wind blow out there

Maybe hear some distant laughter

Look outside the hotel window

When my soul wanders off babe

This is the town I met you in

And I won't soon forget that

Your proud beauty lingers on

Until the storm has lifted

Go find your fortune fast

It's cold outside but you'll make it

Don't trade your love for ambition

You'll get washed away

Round and round and round we go

Where it stops don't no one know

Find a love you better let them know

You'll both get washed away

Round and round and round we go

Where it stops don't no one know

Find a love you better hold on fast

You'll both get washed away

An old cliche

That you used to tell me

Some things might change

All things won't last

Do the best you can

It'll all work out

At the end of the storm

Live to love another day

Round and round and round we go

Where it stops don't no one know

Find a love you better hold on fast

You'll both get washed away

Round and round and round we go

Where it stops don't no one know

Find a love you better hold on fast

You'll both get washed away

The time we spend

As we pass this way

We might not ever be here again

Hold on tight to what you find

Then we're gone tomorrow
