I can see by the way you stare at me
that heaven is just a place you'll never see
but I’ve been trudging up a mountain
just to see across the road
it’s times like these oh lord they’re sure nice to know
but now it’s time for me to go home

but icy silence follows every footstep I believe in
and these ghosts float through my hallway laughing as I try to breathe
they’re inside of me
they knock the wind out of me

days turn into months inside of me
but the minutes drag on by like you wouldn’t believe
so time slips by and slides aside
tiny words flash on a screen
subtitles used to rule my life
they'd get the better of a lesser me
all these things that you couldn’t see


there are things I wish you wouldn’t have left with me
simple little reminders my eyes had to see
and you never gave me any closure
so I had to build my own
I got a truck and struck out on the road
it sure is quiet when I’m alone
but sweet Virginia guides me home
