lyrics

As the shadows pooled tonight
We both needed somewhere to run to
I held you and you asked where
The lights on the highway lead you

Now everything that we know
Is hundreds of miles behind us
Why should we still pretend
There’s only this console between us?

Let’s find a town to stop this car.
And fumble around in the dark.
‘Cause even as my life disintegrates,
I can’t stop wondering how you’d taste.
It took tonight to realize,
the one thing I can’t leave behind...is you.

Hands tied by fear of failure
Too much of my life just slips by
Home can sometimes feel like dying
You have to leave to know you’re alive

But we’re here in the dark together
Our old lives falling further away
In this car pointed God only knows where
I can’t take my eyes from your face

Let’s find a town to stop this car.
And fumble around in the dark.
‘Cause even as my life disintegrates,
I can’t stop wondering how you’d taste.
It took tonight to realize,
the one thing I can’t leave behind...is you.
It's you.
