Verse 1          

We gathered our things

And packed up that U-Haul

You didn’t know what to do

So I had to make the call

 

Forced out of our home

Well the only home we knew

Looking back it was so hard for me

 And I know it was hard

 For you

 Verse 2

We found ourselves driving

Down a lonesome highway

Our kid and our cat

 I had to do it my way

 Dirt road led us

 To our new place

 You’d never been there before

 And I was thoroughly entertained

 By the look On your face

 Chorus

Cause there’s no one for miles around

You can see every star

 And hear every sound

 Cause there’s no one for miles around

 Honey

Welcome to your high desert town

 

Verse 3

Schools so small you might just

Pass it by

Dropped the boy off

For his first day

I started to cry

It feels so strange living back here

In California

You don’t talk about it much

But I know it must feel the same way

For ya

Verse 4

Convenient store opened

About a week ago

No gas no mall

But I kinda liking it though

I spend more time doing

The things that really matter

Spend less time feeling stressed out

Spend less time

Feeling scattered

chorus

Cause there’s no one for miles around

You can see every star

And hear every sound

Cause there’s no one for miles around

Welcome to your high desert town

We gathered our things

And packed up that U-Haul
