Regina Belle – Border Town Road Lyrics

She was taught
The world was small
That it’s all
Dirt and dust
Sunday school
And country songs
A girl can trust

She’ll learn
Her lesson well
She played her part
But those back roads
Couldn’t give
What was missing
In her heart

You can make love
Staring at the stars
From the cold back seat
Of a beat up car
But there’s only so far
That a small town
Girl can go
When the sun comes up
It’s still
The same old sun
‘Cuz the moon
Don’t hang out
On Border Town Road

She thinks
Of all the reasons
Why she outta stay
Right here
A river that runs
Deep and wide
A sky that’s
Always clear
She knows
She can
Live her life
Just to watch
Those seasons change
What’s she
Supposed to do
With those
Relentless dreams


In her room
She packs her clothes
To the glow
Of a distant light
She knows
The moon is shining
On the other side
