Information to be added soon

The lights of the motel shine on to me,
This is the land of the brave, sad and the lonely.
The last ride's,
Coming to me I can feel it.
A new life,
Screaming out and I can't miss it.

Travelling man,
Travelling man,
You get away if you can.

My body's shaking, my body's tired,
Hookers to the left of me, killers on the inside.
The last train,
Left this station long ago.
The headlights,
Shine like diamonds in the snow.

Like a travelling man,
I'm a travelling man.
Run away if you can.

Cruel world keeps turning I'm dead on my feet,
From the blue icy mountains to white city heat.
Factory fire burns like a phoenix tonight,
Spread your wings come on darling.

And your eyes,
Search for me but I can't see them.
And your sweet mouth,
It speaks to me but I can't hear it.
And your - your sweet smile,
Two thousand miles for your warm kisses,
And your sweet child,
I got one last chance and I can't miss it.
No no no no.

Travelling man,
Like a travelling man,
Well I'm a travelling man.
