Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]

I landed on the silver lake washed up and feeling blue
Heard the sound of footsteps drifting softly to the moon
Looking for clear water I had to take control
Out there in the wilderness another bullet hole

[Pre-Chorus]

Playing it all for gods
Yesterday

[Chorus]

Idaho, Idaho
There's a beauty on the road
Everyday I look out on the bus
Silver linings getting lost

[Verse 2]

Floated out into the woods to hear the old elk call
Touched a rainbow with my hands I'm dry, I got 'em all
"Ride on," said the king of cool, "You've got nothing to lose
Tinseltown is down the road it's the bullet of the noose"

[Pre-Chorus]

If you're playing it all for gods
Far away

[Chorus]

Idaho, Idaho
There's a beauty on the road
But everyday I look out on the bus
Silver linings getting lost
