about

Late on a cold, windy night in San Antonio, Andrew went out to play mandolin in the car so he wouldn't wake anybody up. This is what he wrote.

lyrics

Well it’s cold as it’s ever been in San Antonio
Even the trees, they got frostbite
I’m alone freezing to my bones
And I see those lights

But they ain’t the lights I wanted
They don’t have the right glow
And they ain’t getting dimmer
As I go on down the road

And it’s dark as it’s ever been in San Antonio
Can’t see the stars in the sky
I’m alone 1000 miles from home
And I see those lights
