lyrics

I got the car packed and followed the sun
I drove out west where there's work to be done
The miles came rolling down
Like the water in your eyes when I was leaving town
You told me how you loved me but could not remember why
I said, "that's one hell of a way to tell a friend of yours goodbye"
I wished you well and held you close against my chest just one more time
Before you went back to being yours and I went back to being mine

I got the mountains and the evergreen trees
Might say I got what I wanted but it wasn't what I need
Still, there's more to me than you, yeah, and I'm starting to see
A way, a way, a way to be

I reached the place where I was headed after 27 hours
I felt anxious and alive like Roland staring at his tower
From amidst a rolling sea made up of perfect blood red flowers
As the memories of you came pouring over like a shower
Like the waver in your voice when you were too upset for words
The glimmer in your eyes when you told me things no one's heard
Your arm around my waist when you were walking at my side
and the way your mouth would taste when I knew you in the night

I don't want to spend my time kissing girls that I don't love
I don't want to spend my life thinking about the man I was
I just want to build toward something that means something with someone
A way, a way, a way to be

I got the mountains and the evergreen trees
Might say I got what I wanted but it wasn't what I need
Still, there's more to me than you, yeah, and I'm starting to see
A way, a way, a way to be
