Lyrics Cadillac Sky

Cadillac Sky

U Stay Gone

Day after day I stare down this road

And this clock in my chest just ticks away

Night after night I go to bed alone

Oh, how long must I wait

Don't you know it ain't supposed to end this way

Oh, the river rolls to the sea

Thru the mountains, thru the trees

Winding it's way to that ocean foam

And the pigeon flies from it's master's hand

Don't rest it's wings 'till it's back again

Riding the wind where it belongs

So, tell me baby why you stay gone

I've played it in my head hundreds of times

The day God brings you back to me

The dark clouds will scatter and a new sun will rise

Brighter than a child's dream

Oh, when will my faith be redeemed?

The wayward son leaves his father's side

Headed for those city lights

But always stumbles on the road back home

The yellow moon hides it's face

'Till the night is thru at the break of day

But never leaves the lonely alone too long

So, tell me, baby why you stay gone

The silence whispers you're not coming back

The buzzards hover waiting to attack

But our love ain't dead and gone

Someday you're coming home at last
