Colorado

You packed these country roads

In the back of your beat up Wrangler

Rolled up my mountain high

In a box on the passenger side

You picked those stars we used

To wish on and took ‘em with ya

Left me here with nothing but the Aspens

And a cold wind

Chorus:

Colorado

Used to be you and I

Now it’s just me, under these empty skies

And the stars ain’t even here to see me cry

All those mountains,

That we’re never gonna climb

And I don’t think I’ve ever seen a darker night

You left a shadow over my beautiful   Colorado

You left my broken heart

Scattered cross a frozen highway

And now the snow is falling

Trying to cover up that there's nothing left of us

Colorado

Used to be you and I

Now it’s just me, under these empty skies

And the stars ain’t even there to see me cry,

And all those mountains,

That we’re never gonna climb

And I don’t think I’ve ever seen a darker night

You left a shadow over my beautiful…


Bridge:

Sun was brighter; air was sweeter

You were mine and I loved deeper,

I’d be a liar if I told you I was all right in

 

[Chorus]
