3. Texas Like That:
8. Kansas City Sunrise

I moved to Kansas City 'cause I loved you

Was it really seven years ago

Probably my favorite memory of you

Is kissin' at the bus stop in the snow
But the roses that we planted in our front yard

Are bloomin' now in someone else's vase

Thought I could stick around, but it's just too hard

I need to find a different dream to chase

So with the Kansas City sunrise in my rearview

I'm headed west on 35 to Wichita

After wantin' so long to be near you

Freedom feels a little like free fall

But I've done all my cryin'

Now I'm out here flyin' down the road

With my hand out in the wind

And the Kansas City sunrise

Inspirin' me to start over again

Well it hit me hard wakin' up without you

This mornin' in the dark before the dawn

I lay there for a long time thinkin' 'bout you

Couldn't seem to move, much less move on

But then the light came stealin'

Through the window with the feelin'

That the city had swept its stages clean

And if this old town can do it

I knew I should get to it

So I'm startin' out a brand new scene

With the Kansas City sunrise in my rearview

I'm headed west on 35 to Wichita
 After wantin' so long to be near you
 Freedom feels a little like free fall

But I've done all my cryin'

Now I'm out here flyin' down the road

With my hand out in the wind

And the Kansas City sunrise

Inspirin' me to start over again

With the Kansas City sunrise in my rearview

I'm headed west on 35 to Wichita

The fact that I'm still breathin' makes it clear you
 Weren't the reason I live after all
But I've done all my cryin'

Now I'm out here flyin' down the road

With my hand out in the wind

And the Kansas City sunrise

Inspirin' me to start over again

Yeah I'm startin' my new life by the light

Of the Kansas City sunrise
