Midland - Roll Away Lyrics




Well there are pink parachutes
That come on slow
And some nights
That just don't open at all
And you wait on the edge of the rise
She gave me blue kisses on the mesa top
We were stoned and buried in the rocks
And all those empty miles just roll

Just roll
Roll away
They roll
Roll away

She introduced me to a Peruvian queen
Said the best thrill of all is not feeling a thing
And she pointed to a line in the stars
We sat at a piano with only white keys
It went on forever it never did lead to nowhere
And on into the dark

We rolled
Rolled away
We rolled
Rolled away

And oh
It's been a long time coming home
With that red moon sinking low
I say so long
And oh
Before that morning comes
To shine that crooked sun
I'll be gone

  2. Alayne Saltsman

    WOW!!! I thought it was Tom Petty at 1st! Another great song from Midland!!!

  3. Deborah Cluck

    Most under rated band

  4. Deborah Cluck

    All 3 of you make such a good sound. Keep your egos in check we live you from the state of Cali

  5. Boomerthis

    Guitar solo is Allman Brothers-esq...brings back lots of memories of growing up in Macon Ga and Southern Rock...Keep it boys!

  6. Son Kakageta

    This song makes me want to do cocain

  7. Kc Kc

    Feb 22 Odessa Texas me and a couple co-workers will be there we listen to y'all all day!!!! Can't wait

  8. Juanita Hamilton

    Great job Jess 👏👏🤟

  9. Michael Hoffpauir

    If I didn't know any better, I would swear that this song is about a drug fueled escapade into the chasms of cocaine fantasies. Been there, got the T-shirt, fond memories, forbidden territory now, though. Still a great song. These boys are doing it right. Not like all the others, singing, "Here's my truck, here's my beer, I swear to ya'll, I ain't no queer."

  10. Don’t CA My TX

    Smooth jam. Midland continues to move the boundaries of true country.

  11. Jim Garland

    Love me some Midland. One of the best (if not THE best) artists of the new neo-traditional movement. The electric guitars have a mellow Allman Bros-like sound a different parts of the song.

  12. fairybits

    Another great song. Puts on loop. Finds myself rolling on downhill,weeee!

  13. 888HUSKERS

    Can’t begin to tell you how much I love this song. I’ve been cruising around with my wife and kids jamming to the new album and the old one just feeling good. Not to be a downer but I hope as my kids get older if they hear this song they think of us traveling along some highways smiling just feeling blessed. If I feel myself getting down I listen to this song. Thanks for the good tunes and smile you brought to my face.

  14. Anthony Shostal

    Has that "laying with your girl on the hood of your car/truck, watching that Texas sun go down" feel. So mellow. Love it!

  15. Steven Adams

    Anyone know what this song is about? I’m not that great at interpreting stuff like this

    Colton Kinsey

    Steven Adams pretty sure it’s about cocaine

  16. mlapczyzn

    Saw this song performed live in phx last night and I’ve got to say it was epic. Really made the concert.

  17. Samuel Alvarez

    Welcome back to stagecoach2020 MIDLAND!!!!!!

  18. Heriberto Avalos

    Nostalgic

  19. Samuel Alvarez

    Hope Jess and Cameron get to do a music videos for each solo song they have on this album!!!!! That would be money 💰

  20. maria wartchow

    I love it!! Definitely on repeat

    Anthony Shostal

    Too bad it has to stop, right? They could just keep playing that instrumental for hours and I'd be quite alright with it.

  21. Christian Ceniceros

    I fucking love this song, it's my album's favourite ❤️
    Since the first time I heard it I fell with it. Thanks.

  22. John Vigil

    Yee yee real country is on its way boys

  23. Barbara Elle

    I get a Sweet Melissa vibe from this.

  24. Samuel Alvarez

    Well, the pink parachutes, they come on slow
    And some nights they just don't open at all
    And you wait on the edge of the rise
    She gave me blue kisses on the mesa top
    And we were stoned and buried in the rocks
    And all those empty miles
    Just roll
    Roll away
    They roll
    Roll away
    She introduced me to a Peruvian queen
    Said the best thrill of all is not feeling a thing
    And she pointed to a line in the stars
    We sat at a piano with only white keys
    It went on forever and never did lead
    To nowhere and on into the dark
    Where you roll
    Roll away
    Where you roll
    Roll away
    And oh, it's been a long time coming home
    With that red moon sinking low
    I say, "So long"
    You know, before that morning comes
    Just shine that crooked sun
    I'll be gone

    Scott Haus

    Was turned on to these guys a couple months ago. Awesome band

  25. Maria Rodriguez

    I can picture myself on a boat on a lake drinking a few cold ones while listening to this great song! I love Midland!

    EthanChase

    You can say that for all their songs lol

  26. Bunny Semmler

    Anyone else sense a bit of Almond Brothers influence?

    Barbara Elle

    Sweet Melissa?

    TheAmericanaHotel

    Yes! It seems like there's a nod to Jessica by The Allman Brothers Band. Thanks for the point in the right direction!

  27. Sam Vasquez

    Dam Jess should sing a lil more often

  28. OTT PrOdUcTiOnS
