We'd drive for for miles
'Til all the gas was gone
'Til the radio was playing the same songs.

The gas was never free.
But that won't keep you from me.
I'd drive all night long and I did.

Down 52 just to see you.
Close your eyes and I'll see you soon.

Magic shows.
And a runny nose
Another night filled with tears.
Another wasted 10 years.

How can I forgive myself?
If I hate myself?
You know that I miss my life
I almost made you my wife.

I tried throwing out my voice
Just to hear a noise
But the silence, it threw it right back.

But she'll wrap you in her coat.
And put a song in your throat...
No, being alone won't get the best of you just yet.

And I went and saw about the wrong girl.
And all I think about is your lazy curls.

Magic shows.
And a runny nose.
Another night filled with tears
Another wasted 10 years.

My life is filled with fear.
I only wish you were here.
I should burn for what I did to you.
Some things time can't undo.
Some things time won't undo.
