lyrics

She just stands there
talking quietly to herself
replaying the ups and downs
of a lifetime
standing on the shoulder
of the road
a hitchhiker with her thumb out
in the night
Searching her heart to remember
the choices in love she had made
praying a set of headlights
would surrender
for a hitchhiker alone
in the rain

Just in time
just in time
just in time

She got three kids and a man
who adore her
but Papa John got sick and died
in spring
now Marijane just can’t
seem to get over it
and her brother lost his job
again
Then out of an open door she heard
“Where you headed?”
“I’m headed to my hopes
and life’s dreams…”
“I’m going in the same direction,
let’s get started…”
And the headlights played a rainbow
in the rain

Just in time…..

An she’s standing in the midst
of fading memories
trying to read the signs
she left so far
behind
she can’t even remember
how or when she left
the well traveled road
and struck out
on her own

Just in time…..

And the desert road stretched on
forever
covered in a mist
and full moon
with all the hopes and the dreams
of a lifetime
reflected in her eyes
she turned home
reflected in her eyes
she turned home
reflected in her eyes
she turned home

Shanti, shanti, shanti
Om…..
