Story

This idea came to me from a friend.  Just some old words on a cocktail napkin.  She gave me permission to build a song around the lyrics.  I added some words and images of my own, but it's her imaginary road trip!

Lyrics

Wichita

 

Driving west on the interstate, driving all day long

Running fast, chasing down the sun

When midnight came, Topeka, turned south to Wichita

Wee small hours, cheap hotel, first one that I saw

 

Too tired to keep on driving, tired of running from the past

Strung out but not sleepy, I won’t come down fast

Drank a beer and wrote to you, then I killed the lights

Lay down to sleep, closed my eyes, there you were in sight

 

                  We made love in Wichita

                  But only I was there

                  Ah, we made love in Wichita

                  When you were who knows where

                  Who knows where

 

  Well I dreamed you were right next to me

  I felt you hold me tight

  Your loving arms, your kiss so sweet

  I’m giving up the fight

  Stay with me until I wake from this lonesome dream of you

  We burned down that Kansas night with a fire that burned so true

 

Well maybe distance will redeem me

Maybe time will set me free

Let me sleep tonight in Dodge or Denver

Or the next place that I see

I’ll remember to forget you

Your skin, your eyes and your kiss

And in my sleep not love you

Not let you in like this

 

                  Oh, we made love inWichita

                  But only I was there

                  Ah, we made love in Wichita

                  When you were who knows where

                  Who knows where

 

We made love in Wichita

It was only in my dreams

Oh, how we loved in Wichita

Things are never what they seem

Only in my dreams

Only in my dreams
