If I had another eye, I'd see the whole world
Two to keep me between the lines, as the road turned
One stayed on the setting sun, behind me
if I had the eyes to see.

Alone I keep a steady keel, my conscience
timing like an idle wheel, across the distance
ever wishing you were here
to give me grace
to fill the empty space.

Singing, oooooh…. x4

This old North Dakota blue is an ocean
Deeper than the fields we knew
and when I'm feeling very small and overcome
our song will guide me home

Singin', oooooh … x4
this wandering road
this wandering road.
