Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
His goal in life was to be an echo
Riding alone, town after town, toll after toll
A fixed bayonet through the great southwest to forget her
Verse 2
She appears in his dreams
But in his car and in his arms
A dream can mean anything
A cheap sunset on a television set can upset her
But he never could
Verse 3
Remember to remember me
Standing still in your past
Floating fast like a hummingbird
Verse 4
His goal in life was to be an echo
The type of sound that floats around and then back down
Like a feather
But in the deep chrome canyons of the loudest Manhattans
No one could hear him
Or anything
Verse 5
So he slept on a mountain
In a sleeping bag underneath the stars
He would lie awake and count them
And the gray fountain spray of the great Milky Way
Would never let him
Die alone
Verse 6
Remember to remember me
Standing still in your past
Floating fast like a hummingbird
Verse 7
Remember to remember me
Standing still in your past
Floating fast like a hummingbird
Verse 8
A hummingbird
A hummingbird
