We, we pulled up
In an old trucker’s lodge
Just me and my baby sprung from chaos and we
We laid in the back of our cramped old hatch
Just lying in each other’s arms

I, I thought back
To the years we’ve had
When our love had swayed right off the tracks and how
We figured it out
That everything is worthy
sometimes it’s worthy of the doubt

And I’ve been away, I’ve been near
But I think it’s always been quite clear
that we, we can always part
but that was never, never in the cards

And I, I found god
On the side of the road
His hair in his eyes and lungs filled with smoke, but I
I couldn’t breath, without you here-here next to me and I

I’ve seen the sun. I watched it rise as we drove through the mountains -stones to the skies and
You, you took a drag, as we drove away from all of those yesterdays


from The Road, released March 6, 2016
