lyrics

I'll make my way down the interstate
I'll leave this one-way town
And if you haven't heard from me just know I'll be around.

The last thing that she said to me before she drove away
Is, "Boy don't let that city change you.
When life gets hard, don't let it make you think you're wrong
Or not enough
And just remember that I love you and I hope to see you've made it
But I just can't sit here waiting.

And I hope one day, you find what you've been looking for.
Just please don't lose yourself.
And if you find one day, you're missing me,
Just please don't look back, don't you look back now.
That's just how it's gotta be."

The last words I could think to say before she drove away
Were, "Girl, I'd give you all the answers if i could only find the words to say.
This town will be the death of me, so I filled that car with gasoline."
She closed her eyes, turned and sighed
And all I could think to say was

I hope one day you find what you've been looking for
Just please don't lose yourself
And if you find one day you're missing me,
Just please don't look back, don't you look back now.
That's just how it's gotta be.

I'll make my way down the interstate
I'll leave this one-way town
And if you haven't heard from me, just know I'll be around

That's just how it's gotta be.
