lyrics

peace of mind
as the lights flicker on the old highway sign
I’m southbound tonight
and thats alright

the old sign reads to me
well you’re headed for roanoke son
you won’t find you no dignity
but at least you’ll have some fun

so I’ll stay up all night talking
just as long as it’s with you
my friends tell me I’m crazy
that I should find somebody new

but they don’t see you the way I do
they don’t see the way you smile
I might just buy a ticket now
just to see you more time


(chorus)
and I’ll keep saying I love you
until the day one of us dies
I know it probably bugs you
but at least I’m no surprise

if I only get to see you
maybe once or twice a year
I’ll consider that my savior
I’ll consider you my greatest fear


and I know that you still miss me
I just wish sometime you’d call
it’s only life
but we just get one before you fall

I know that you still worry
I know that you still care
but this feeling never sets you free
don’t let it claim you while you’re fare

it’s the hour of my salvation
sit back and watch the rolling tide
but I’ll pine just a few more months
I’ve learned just how to swallow pride

CHORUS

thank god we fell in love
thank god we fell apart
you’re never gonna have a good ending
if you can’t legitimize the start

but I’m gonna make you my daydream
I’m gonna let you fill my heart
I’m gonna watch you climb on that plane
and leave me acting out my part

I’m gonna watch you fly home
and leave my broken heart
you might not be my lover
but you’re my friend

you might not ever be mine again
but I guess I’ll never forget
the day that I first met you
and the day you made me fall
