lyrics

eastbound
like lines on a face you had to leave behind
you always wondered how they would change in time
now you stare at the dashboard
and try to clear your mind
all this time
highway signs suggest you turn back
but you don't read,
you just press the gas
alone
and the radio blares
suggests that someone cares
but this desert shows you
all you think you need to know

westbound...
the journeys we take just seem to circle around
till somebody breaks and the pain is like
a groundswell of memories
of summer rains and dirty feet
of fingers on each other's teeth
and making love in SUVs
or the day the towers came crashing down
Los Angeles was a ghost town
we didn’t know what to sing or say
and I’m not sure we know today

all this time
highway signs suggest you turn back
but you don't read,
you just press the gas
alone
and the radio blares
It claims that someone cares
but this desert shows you
all you think you need to know

i lost myself along the path
of the first part of my life
but I’ve grown up, I know what I want
and she’s right here by my side
and I’ve learned to let go
because I still have this road
i still have these hands to turn the wheel
and i won’t hit the breaks
though there have been mistakes
they created this life that i hold dear
