lyrics

I like the curves around and below her strong back
As she slips into the swimming hole, tells me don't look
But I could no more look away than feel good about leaving here today
Would you light a candle for me, Annie?

And if that flame burns hot as your wood stove
Some day I will finish this endless road
and be right back here in Annieland

Some say a man's like a shooting star, hot and fast
And a woman like the constant moon
She's built to last
But I will stoke this fire in me
Become the sun and the wind and the sea
I would do all this to reach you Annie
I see me somewhere on that long hard ride
And I get that phone call when you decide
I come right back here to Annieland
Here to Annieland
Here to Annieland

Annie dreams with her bedroom door open
I walk by, I do not look in
She don't know how she makes my head spin
Here, Here in Annieland
Here in Annieland
Here in Annieland

I will stoke this fire in me
Become the sun and the wind and the sea
I would do all this to reach you Annie
And if that flame burns hot as your wood stove
She day I will finish this endless road and be
Right back Here in Annieland
Here in Annieland
Here in Annieland
