The Promise Of Each New Day (Live)
Farther and farther we're falling behind
Running a race on a course undefined
Scared of our shadows and whistling by graves
Counting on blessings we never have saved

Tales they told us just haven't come true
A world spinning faster just blurring the view
The days seem so long though the years are well-worn
Testing our faith in the eye of the storm


Johnny guitar solo
