When I was nineteen I threw my stuff in the car
I headed up to the Rockies, got a job at this bar
Sellin' beer to the locals, just barely getting by
On the tips from the rich kids, there on Daddy's dime
But when I saw her walk in one night I knew that Id be all right in

[Chorus]
Telluride, the snow fallin' down, I was wakin' up in that sleepy little town
In her eyes my world came so alive, I never will forget the moment she arrived in Telluride

We spent that whole winter tangled up by a fire castin' shadows on the cabin wall,
Drownin' in desire
Confessin' all our secrets and laughin' out loud, so high up on that mountain,
I thought wed never come down
It was a dream we were livin' in and I was the happiest I'd ever been in

[Chorus]

Telluride, whoa-oh-oh

It ended just like a movie scene and I had to play the part
Of the lover who stood there and watched her leave and me with the frozen heart


In Telluride, the snow fallin' down, standin' there alone in that sleepy little town
In her eyes, my world came so alive, I never will forget the day she said goodbye

[Chorus]
