lyrics

just sitting on my hands, waiting
wishing they would lift me up
wishing that I wasn't this way
dwelling on my thoughts, driving
wondering if I'll really ever feel the sun again
or will I only pretend?

I wish that I'd have known you now
no, I mean really known you
maybe then I wouldn't feel this way
losing you is something I
always knew was coming
but to know is not to feel
but to live and die
that's real

all my life, all my life
took the good you gave and I put it away
all your lies, all your lies
tried to let 'em go but they'll linger always
in my heart, in your heart
I hope that you wished you coulda done it all over
but it's too late
it's too late to know

riding down 75
sitting on the passenger side
trying not to breathe your smoke
but I don't care about it, no
Rick Dees is on the radio
and I might fall asleep
cause when I'm with you
I never worry

and that's how it was on the mornings
when we woke before the sun came up
we'd drive to Atlanta, get some food,
talk a while, and load the truck
and one time we saw a bunch of shooting stars
on the long drive back home
and that was the last time I saw them
and I'm glad we had that moment

all my life, all my life
took the good you gave and I put it away
all your lies, all your lies
tried to let 'em go but they'll linger always
in my heart, in your heart
I hope that you wished you coulda done it all over
but it's too late
it's too late to know

will you be there
when I get where
will you be there
when I get where I'm going?
will you be there
when I get where
will you be there
when I get there?
will you?
