I'll tell you this. No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn. I'll tell you 'bout Texas radio and the Big Beat. Soft, driven, slow and mad, like some new language. Now, listen to this, and I'll tell you 'bout the Texas. I'll tell you 'bout the Texas radio. I'll tell you 'bout the hopeless night. Wandering the Western dream.
