lyrics

A warm hand on a cold bottle
from a fridge in a neon-lit store
Warm light on a dark road
I’ve been driving all night

The store smells
like coffee and Pinesol
They’ve got pills to keep you up all night
But I only have a few hours more
Roll down the window, doing fine

Girl behind the counter
Underneath the cigarettes
She’s pretty, kinda, she mostly looks lost
As she sips on a coffee
And pages through a magazine

Well it’s the same old story with me
But it’s the only one I’ve got so I’m gonna tell it
I’ve got her voice, but I lost her face,
Somewhere out on the road

Faraway, but I hear her music
It’s hard to sing the blues when you get a break
So if you’re blessed, you better take it
So i’ll drive it as far as it can go

Girl behind the counter
Underneath the cigarettes
She’s pretty, kinda, underneath the makeup
As she opens up the register
And never even looks in my face

Nights like these
Everything is open
My life lays before me so I can see it
East to West
Left to Right
Years go by in a night

All the stations on the left of the dial
Fade in and fade out of the static
