Runnin' Out of Sunlight

I know I need to talk with the woman.
The next time the moment comes around.
I need to walk by the ocean
Let the sound of the wind calm me down.

I'm punchin' radio buttons like typewriter keys.
Tryin' to find me somebody sing truly to me.
Big semi's blowin' by me like they know where they're bound

And there are shadows on the windshield turning into night.
Showin' up a little too soon.
I can't make out the markings down the dotted line
Can't see where it's leadin' me to.

Suddenly a signal way off to the right.
Lost in the last of the blue.
Deeper into darkness, runnin' out of sunlight
And still not a sign of the moon.

Omen, on omen, on omen, as if the sky just opened up.
It's almost as if there's a motion to scatter the dove.

Static on the station, river on the rise
Clouds in formation just above the power lines
Lately it seems like we're lost light years from love.

And there are shadows on the windshield turning into night.
Showin' up a little too soon.
I can't make out the markings down the dotted line
Can't see where they're leadin' me to.

Suddenly a signal way off to the right.
Lost in the last of the blue.
Deeper into darkness, runnin' out of sunlight
And still not a sign of the moon.
