My soul is in the mountains
My heart is in the land
I'm lost here in the city
There's so much I don't understand

There's quiet desperation comin' over me
Comin' over me

I've got to leave I can't stay another day
There's an emptiness inside of me
I can't bear the loneliness out here
There's another place I've got to be

I long for you Dakota
Smell of sweet grass on the plain
I see too much meanness
And I feel too much pain

There's quiet desperation comin' over me
Comin' over me

I've got to leave I can't stay another day
There's an emptiness inside of me
I can't bear the loneliness out here
There's another place I've got to be
