On my way up north
Up on the Ventura
Pulled back the hood
And I was talking to you
And I knew then it would be
A life long thing
But I didn't know that we
We could break a silver lining

And I'm so sad
Like a good book
I can't put this day back
A sorta fairytale with you (a sorta fairytale with you)
A sorta fairytale with you

Things you said that day
Up on the one-oh-one
The girl come undone
I tried to downplay it
With a bet about us
You said that you'd take it
As long as I could
I could not erase it

And I'm so sad
Like a good book
I can't put this day back
A sorta fairytale with you
A sorta fairytale with you

And I ride alongside you then
And I rode alongside you then
And I rode along side 'till you lost me there in the open road
And I rode along side till the honey spread itself so thin
For me to break your bread
For me to take your word
I had to steal it

And I'm so sad
Like a good book
I can't put this day back
A sorta fairytale with you (a sorta fairytale with you)
I could pick back up whenever I feel

Down New Mexico way
Something about the open road
I knew that he was looking for some Indian blood and
Find a little in you find a little in me 
we may be on this road but
We're just impostors in this country you know
So we go along and we said we'd fake it
Feel better with Oliver Stone
Till I almost smacked him seemed right that night and
I don't know what takes hold
Out there in the desert cold
These guys think they must
Try and just get over on us

And I'm so sad
Like a good book
I can't put this day back
A sorta fairytale with you (A sorta fairytale with you
A sorta fairytale with you

And I was ridin' by
Ridin' along side
For a while till you lost me
And I was ridin' by
Ridin' along till you lost me
'Till you lost Me in The rear view
You lost me I said

Way up North I took my day
All in all was a pretty nice day and 
I put the hood right back where
You could taste heaven perfectly
Feel out the summer breeze
Didn't know when we'd be back and I 
I don't, didn't think
We'd end up like
Like this
