Every Hundred Miles

  • Every Hundred Miles

Stay for the night
Take off your coat
It’s been such a long time
Since I’ve had you alone

I’ve been runnin’ in circles and it’s taken its toll
How can I explain that I’ve missed you every hundred miles?
You’ll forgive me in a little while

One more for the road
A whisky and gin
To mock the parade
Just like we were kids

We wondered like stars, young in the sky
You filled up my nights and now I miss you every hundred miles
You’ll forgive me in a little while

I came here to say that I’m sorry
Effortless in every word
Wrote them down
Rehearsed each line
Then, I’ll walk away when you’ve heard

Well baby, it’s rough to be on your own
Worship yourself, then suffer alone
The dishes collect, the paint hasn’t dried
These thorns on the trail are now ankle high

Where you were my rose, punching through dirt
Budding in frost, growing in thirst
And all of the lovers that you will hurt will miss you every hundred miles
But you’ll forget me in a little while

I want to say that I’m sorry
Effortless in every word
Wrote them down
Rehearsed each line
Then, I’ll walk away when you’ve heard
