Almost exactly a year ago
I came here for the very first time
Looking up at the Spanish window
From a trail on the edge of the timberline
I’ve been off on a journey to find myself
Maybe find my way back home
Been many an hour all by myself
In the darkest of nights
I was never ever alone

Back in the San Juan Mountains again
On a ride with some good old boys
Telling stories around a campfire
The sound of laughter is the loudest noise
There’s something in a night in the wilderness
It’s a magical thing to me
Like the sky is just a little bit brighter
And your life is everything that you’d like it to be

There’ll be snow on the passes tomorrow
You can feel it in the chill of the wind
Let the rain wash away all my sorrow
Today is the day that my life starts all over again

I guess that it’s just about over now
Everything’s about to change
Everything’s a brand new number, darlin’
Everything’s a brand new game
And it’s funny I could even call you that
After all the pain we’ve been through
Ah, but time is the master of healing
Love is the master of everything that we do

There’ll be snow on the passes tomorrow
You can feel it in the chill of the wind
Let the rain wash away all my sorrow
Today is the day that my life starts all over again
