Chris Whitley
Hotel Vast Horizon

I'll meet you there when
the evening writhes
I will know the location
by the look in your eyes

The void and the vista
the fugitives gone
I'll see you there
at the Hotel Vast Horizon

All them authorizations
we must have missed
are just the dictions dissolving
when we kissed

Just to transfigure
where others have fallen
I'll see you there
at the Hotel Vast Horizon
see you there

A long trail of lovers
came out of the prison
it becomes a matter of habit*
after the season
and the distance's mirror
the witnesses gone

I'll see you there
at the Hotel Vast Horizon
see you there

*Paul Éluard "The Castles of the Poor"
