Robert, my friend, driving the big rigs
into the blinding snows of Minnesota

Heather, his lover, working two jobs
waiting on tables, surviving on tips

They bought our trailer
a dream she had forever

to have her own place
her own space

Everyone has this deep need
for their own place and space

Well, they finally made the last payment
but then Robert told us Heather has died

I can’t believe it, but it’s true

Then Robert disappeared from our lives
he’s driving his big rig into the darkness

These were good mountain people
but now they’re gone from my life
