Me And The Highway

I never tell you how much I miss you
Knowing it's all better left unsaid
Still mesmerized by renditions of you
In the back of my head

Wish I could grab you and pull you closer
Making up for the time we lost
Slow dancing in the kitchen in the early
Hours of the morning

If I could get in a car and
Know I was closing in by the mile
Me and the highway
Maybe this time I'd stay for a while
Leaving the highway
Then falling asleep in your arms tonight

All my days I've been running away
I've been all about tomorrows
Here I go falling head over heels
In a dream of yesterday
I'm high and dry
Barely getting by
I'm so tired of always waiting
Oh, I miss the silliest things when you're far away
You're too far away

Do you remember our conversations
Hours of setting our minds at ease
God forbid someone else comes around
Before I'm back in the city

There was a time when on lazy Sundays
I didn't mind being on my own
Now I have trouble remembering when
I ever felt so alone

If I could get in a car and
Know I was closing in by the mile
Me and the highway
Then falling asleep in your arms tonight

All my days I've been running away
I've been all about tomorrows
Here I go falling head over heels
In a dream of yesterday
I'm high and dry
Barely getting by
I'm so tired of always waiting
Oh, I miss the silliest things
I miss the silliest things when you're far away
You're too far away

I've got a feeling it might be the
Once-in-a-lifetime-no-hesitation-
Regrets-for-better-or-worse kind
No way around it
I've got everything to lose
So stay where you are
'Cause I'm coming for you

If I could get in a car and
Know I was closing in by the mile
Me and the highway
Maybe this time I'd stay for a while
Leaving the highway
Then falling asleep in your arms tonight

All my days I've been running away
I've been all about tomorrows
Here I go falling head over heels
In a dream of yesterday
I'm high and dry
Barely getting by
I'm so tired of always waiting
Oh, I miss the silliest things
I miss the silliest things about you
I miss the silliest things when you're far away
You're too far away

If I could get in a car and
Know I was closing in by the mile
Me and the highway
