Lyrics

                     GOING AWAY
             Amy Fradon & Greg Trafidlo

Thousands of stars in the sky tonight
And I don't believe it's gonna rain
But the heat in these hills burns like memories
And my mind is going away

   Chorus:
   Gone away with the breezes
   Gone away with the wind
   Blowin' like the dust on the plains
   Going somewhere to something I never known
   But I am going away

Thousands of fireflies drift through the night
The warm winds whisper a prayer
And a longing to feel just the emptiness
A face I had hoped would be there

   Repeat chorus

Bridge:

Calling…
Beckoning, "follow the signs."
My spirit must go, where the night only knows
A truth that's no ones but mine

Thousands of nights for all these years
My dreams have had their way
But I woke up each mornin' alone again
And this old heart welcomes the change

   Repeat chorus
