You and me out in the dark lookin' for shadows
Saturday night, a little too young to take good care
A little too wild, a little too old to get lost in the woods

A gravel road fadin' away back in the darkness
Two tire tracks, just one thing on my mind
Makin' me blind, that's holdn' you close, deep in the woods

Chorus
Once the stream ran clear down to the river
Once the tall, tall pines covered the sky
Your sweet sigh was all it took to cover the silence
I can't remember any love half as good
No, nothin' as good as you and me deep in the woods

I remember the day you moved away back to the city
Somebody said your daddy's in debt, sellin' his land
Here comes a man and he's got a plan
For the place in the woods

Drivin' around this little town everything changes
Every day they haul away a little bit more
You can be sure there's nothin' left of our place in the woods

Repeat chorus
