from by The Chanteymen



The morning I left town I packed up my car and went out for my last cup of coffee, I turned in my keys and said all my goodbyes and I pointed myself towards the highway, the streets were still silent, the houses were dark, it was right about then that it hit me, I would spend my day driving towards the unknown, I was leaving my old life behind me, a hundred miles out I took out your photo and looked at it once for the memory, and opened my window and watched in the mirror as it fell to the pavement behind me, the tears came in trickles, the roadmap got smudged as I tell myself everything’s OK, the radio’s on and I’m singing our song so loud, and I hope you can hear me.
