The world was on fire and no one could save me but you

I'd never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

Kelley Wright. I believe IT WAS part of a soundtrack directed by David Lynch. The Movie? But Nicholas Cage and William Defor were in it. Late 80s-early 90s. Cool song.

My wife and I fell in love when I was incarcerated . Didn't know when I was coming home. Neither of us wanted to fall in love. But we did. Several years later this would be our song, at our wedding.

This song transports me to the desert. 20 or so years ago this cd carried me across the highway from flagstaff to monument valley. Clear morning after a snowfall. Drove into a rising sun to see the stone monuments. Magic. Will never forget that beautiful day.

Never really ever understood the chorus because it was sung really low and slightly inaudible. Which really was his inner voice. Now it makes total sense..

I don't really know any of his songs but, I felt like this about a man in my life long ago. I totally understand the meaning and pain written. Excellent lyrics and extremely soulful singing!!! Beautiful and sad song.

I've met Chris many times in Seattle and he is a very grounded person. Sounds the same live as on albums and he is very very funny.

Such a beautiful and hypnotic song. Not a big fan of his stuff but this is spine chilling to me! I played this tune near 1000 times with two bands and it STILL stands as one of my favorites! ! 1
