by the time i met you
i was already gone
texas couldn't hold me
it was time for movin’ on
and you were just a shooting star
that i was wishin’ on
on my last night in that town

a pretty local girl
with a little time to spend
a smile, a handshake
an introduction from a friend
you said “what's another day or two
before your trip begins”
the warm wind was blowin’ through your hair

i can still smell
the rain on your skin
after the storm
we were playin’ in
and i could wonder
‘bout what might have been
but i'd rather think about what was
the nights with you
beneath the high-desert sky
when i hear that music
i can still taste your smile
and i hold you close
in my thoughts for a while
your blowin’ through my mind again
like the warm west texas wind

it happens only once
in every young man's life
just one first love
only one first time
don't think i told you
but i'm glad that you were mine
i wonder if i ever cross your mind

i can still smell
the rain on your skin
after the storm
we were playin’ in
and i could wonder
‘bout what might have been
but i'd rather think about what was
the nights with you
beneath the high-desert sky
when i hear that music
i can still taste your smile
and i hold you close
in my thoughts for a while
your blowin’ through my mind again
like the warm west texas wind
