Wyoming was much too far to go,
But at the end of the road, there was a glow,
It beckoned, it beamed,
For the kisses that steamed,
And lit up two hearts in the know.

How's about...

Home was once a place called Sage

Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Sage (in the short story) is where Ennis hails from, near the Utah border, and far soiuth in Wyoming.

Home was once a place called Sage
That held him like a gilded cage
Will you stop playing with that radio of yours, I'm trying to get to sleep!

That held him like a gilded cage,
He lost his folks, on one bad turn,
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

Home was once a place called Sage,
That held him like a gilded cage,
He lost his folks, on one bad turn,
And self-reliance he had to learn,
Will you stop playing with that radio of yours, I'm trying to get to sleep!

That held him like a gilded cage,
He lost his folks, on one bad turn,
And self reliance he had to learn,
As sadness sometimes turned to rage.



He met a girl, when all alone,

He met a girl, when all alone,
And thought his stint at bliss to hone

And thought his stint at bliss to hone
It was, after all, what was expected

And thought his stint at bliss to hone,
It was, after all, what was expected,
A love with Jack, he had rejected,
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.
