As the day turns down on this tiny valley town
and the church bell rings and that freight train sings
and the lamp light shines from the quiet country line
the sounds of twilight come to be

when the river moves slow and the cool wind starts to blow
and the men where they sat on the planters in their hats
mosy and roam back to wherever they call home
tell me where is it that i'll be

there are footprints on the moon but they surely aren't mine
there are people as I sleep who have seen the oceans deep
so what's it for that i'm even trying

when that mama's on the moon or in the darkest ocean tomb
and the rest of us sit in the daylight lit
we try to make it count for the while, while we're around
that moment that glimpse of connection

well it comes in code somewhere on this lonely road
it's a strangers knowing look or an old dog eared book
it's a long embrace from a familiar face
it's feeling and giving protection

so let me sing you this song because right here we belong
to this weird and wonderful truth

there are footprints on the moon and it's alright that they're not mine
and maybe while I sleep I can go to oceans deep
we're on the very same trip and we're trying
