VERSE 1
There goes another traveling man
Out in LA, to play another one-night stand
It's hard to leave all the stars in the hills
Who are freezing their hearts out with hundred dollar bills
There's an open microphone
At a club down the street
With his old guitar wearing new strings
He sits and waits to be seen
Adrift in the clouds, aloft in his dreams
CHORUS
Dreaming of love, dreaming it backstage
Looking for love, seeking it backstage
Singing of love, singing it backstage

VERSE 2
City stories, highways and farms
And visions of a family with children wrapped up in his arms
He's got broken teeth and a golden heart
And twenty years of songs taped to his guitar
He wears his songs like a uniform
And travels the 2-lane highways thru the sun and the storms
Asleep in his van, aloft in his dreams
CHORUS
He's dreaming of love, dreaming it backstage
Looking for love, seeking it backstage
Singing of love, singing it backstage

BRIDGE
Then one night out in Kansas City
He heard an angel's silhouette
She was singing of magical moments
When two hearts share a sweet duet

CHORUS
Now, they're singing of love, out on the big stage
They found their true love, out on the big stage
They're sharing their love, out on the big stage
