A part of my heart still beats in the hills of Virginia,
Where the sunlight drips through the clouds like a cool fall rain.
And I guess it's been awhile since I've been to the place of my birth;
Nothing much has changed, I'm just bigger in a smaller world.

It's the passing of time,
It's a state of mind,
And it's high time that I took a long look around.

It's fall in Colorado and the days are getting shorter and shorter.
Shadows from the aspens are growing longer on the path in front of me.
A feeling of excitement as the snow starts to fall from the sky;
My skis come out of storage, facilitating my ability to fly.

It's a powder day,
I should be on my way,
But I slept late today and I lost my spot in line.

The light is gold as it falls through the trees
And it shines on me.
The mountains meet the sky, they rise so high,
Good lord, I can't believe my eyes.
