lyrics

Looking at it now
It never could allow
I could drive all night again
To make sense somehow

We were kids burning bright
Wasted out of sight
All dressed up & shivered there
On a beach in Michigan lights

We were hiding
In the night

Coming on home
The river rose up left me nowhere to go
Searching for you everywhere I know
Maybe baby we were born to run alone
Do you think of me?
Do you think about a long time ago?

These promises we swore
Creaking cross your floor
Memories are fading scars
Looking out for more

I wish that you would stay
Only one more day
Our younger dreams are nowhere now
There’s so much that I could say

We were liars
Sliding away

Coming on home
The river rose up left me nowhere to go
Searching for you everywhere I know
Maybe baby we were born to run alone
Do you think of me?
Do you think about a long time ago?

I want to be the only one
The artifact, the smoking gun
The wildflower on sunburned skin
To beg & borrow to never let in
Veins of the city, the bones of a song
& everything that I did wrong
The piece of the puzzle I’ll never show
Please honey don’t let me go

Coming on home
The river rose up left me nowhere to go
Searching for you everywhere I know
Maybe baby we were born to run alone
Do you think of me?
Do you think about a long time ago?
