lyrics

A couple more hours and I've got to be packed to go
The hardest damn part of the day is to say goodbye
I didn't even know my world had been destroyed
Until I kissed you grab my things and sauntered by

And the skies change color before my eyes
anxiety is running high
rolling hills through the Spanish peaks
a swirling western wind, sings us both to sleep

come on baby let me know just where you are tonight
It's been over two weeks and I'm going out of my mind

Woke up late to stay up all night
It was the only way to make it back to you on time
cross the Georgia border and my worries went away
it shouldn't be much more than another day

Around Gatlinburg things got real cold
the back of the hill snow started to fall
Everything was closed all the roads were dead
I found a small motel at the end of the bend

come on baby let me know just where you are tonight
It's been over two weeks and I'm going out of my mind

The empty space was no longer space
the infinite void was no longer void

The neon lights kept glowing
all through the night
blankets draped on me
they couldn't hold out cold and couldn't hold out light

Neon lights kept glowing
all though the night
and on the radio only white noise

got out in Illinois and the water began to freeze
crossed the river bridge so close to home
around the 120 attention began to fade
we'll get it up to 88 and well get away

down past the winding terraces
and out of the dream
right by the local market and the bungalows
They're all asleep
