Tried to hold you but my hands were tied
Tried to tell you I couldn’t lie
Tried to find you but there was too much to hide
So I went the distance
I went the distance
But I saw you in the scattered light.

Tried to forget across the great divide
Tried to go farther ’til the even tide
Tried to build another fire
But the nights grew longer
Winds blew stronger
And I saw you in the scattered light.

Did I go too long
Did I go too hard
My love, if I’d stayed on
Would you have found it in your heart?
Would you have found it in your heart?

There are no straight roads away from love
Past exiled hopes and morning doves
Past memories of memories of memories
Through cold and heat and cold and heat and cold and heat

Tried to hold you but my hands were tied
I tried to tell you I couldn’t lie
Tried to find you but there was too much to hide
So I went the distance
Went the distance
But I saw you in the scattered light
I saw you in the scattered light
I saw you in the scattered light
I saw you in the scattered light
