Vanishing Point by Sue Nordman

When you’re ridin’ backwards in the rumble seat

You’re always watchin’ the faded lines of history recede

Lookin’ ahead, the windshield’s cracked like a cataract

But you keep on lookin’ forward to quit that lookin’ back

Up ’round the bend in a dark valley it leads

You follow it up to distant high lonesome peaks

The roads are uncharted, your directions lost

At the end of the day the pay off is greater than the price of loss

But you’ll never catch up

Oh that vanishing point, it’s just too far

No fast-moving train, no speeding car

No high-flying plane or a shooting star

Will ever catch you up

To that vanishing point, oh it’s just too far

Way up in the distance a sign says “”Danger Fall Out Zone”

You take one glance quickly decide to follow that road

Thrill of the unknown keeps you feelin’ alive

No more sleepwalkin’ through your days, it’s high time you get in for a ride

But you’ll never catch up

To that vanishing point, it’s just too far

No fast-moving train, no speeding car

No high-flying plane or a shooting star

Will ever catch you up

To that vanishing point, oh it’s just too far

When am I goin’ to get there, a little voice whispers in your head

You’ll get there when you get there, the other voice in there said

But how will I know when I’ve arrived?

Oh you know you’ve arrived when you feel so completely and utterly alive

But you’ll never catch up

To that vanishing point, it’s just too far

No fast-moving train, no speeding car

No high-flying plane or a shooting star

Will ever catch you up

To that vanishing point, oh it’s just too far
