Lyrics/Notes

Colorado
On the rise through new elevations
New days begun
Fuel the ride with anticipation
and sweet summer sun

Down the rocks run the cool rushing waters
. . . movin' along
Memories of some sweet days
and some new ones comin' on

Colorado
Summertime

Fill the heart with new animation
Be here again
Fill the high with sweet celebration
Rememberin' when

Down the rocks run the cool rushing waters
Singin' a song

Memories of some sweet days
and some new ones just begun

Colorado
Summertime
Colorado
Summertime

Notes: In the beginning, the band would jam a tune called "Icarus" in the middle of the song. This gave way over time to the newer deconstruction of "The Staten Island Hornpipe," which is the end bit of the song. Skehan mentioned that in an interview sometime around when "Elko" came out. He's basically playing the hornpipe inside-out, if you follow. - Scott
