lyrics

Leaving Home ain't pleasant
the road can be cold and cruel
when all that you've learned is present
in these familiar rooms

and I have been feeling distant
from the friends i've learned to love
i crave the comfort of transition
and a car covered in rust

Your eyes are facing down
your feet are planted firmly in the ground
you're thinking about how
she left you standing there in your mother's house

and you're waiting for the fall
and nothing that you do will help at all
the cold will settle in
both your hands will crack and your eyes will sting.

what's unknown is beautiful
when what we live ain't new
but the warmth of other women
just ain't as warm as you

sing me a reprise
that i know as well as home
delivered with the guilty comfort
of drinking all alone

I have a friend, a brother
with a vision of the west
we'll trade the coasts together
and leave its for the best

My feet are moving now
away from the place where she taught me how
to love her with my mouth
and drive myself into the ground

I'm waiting for the fall
nothing that i do will help at all
the cold will settle in
both my hands will crack and my eyes will sting
