Road Regrets

Album: Nice, Nice, Very Nice (2009)
  • We drive until the gas is gone
    And then walk until our feet are torn
    Crawl until we feed the soil
    Film the whole thing

    It's all business in the left-hand lane
    Drive there and then drive back again
    Escape can't be the only way to escape

    So I've gotten used to coffee sweats
    Still getting used to road regrets
    And hell I took you up on all your threats to leave

    It's a shame
    It's a crying shame
    Them's the breaks
    And ain't it always the way
    That takes you back to from where it is you came

    And Robbie likes his country tunes
    It's never been the lens that I see through
    But I guess driving for a week or two
    Puts words in your mouth

    So find dodge and then get out of it
    It's about as country as I get
    So you ain't living 'til you're living it
    Not dead 'til you die

    But watch out for the paraphrase
    'Cause they will crown you and they will take your legs
    See the cost is more than what you get paid
    But do it anyway

    It's a shame
    It's a crying shame
    Them's the breaks
    And ain't it always the way
    It takes you back to from where it is you came

    It's a shame
    It's a crying shame
    Them's the breaks
    And ain't it always the way
    It takes you back to from where it is you came Writer/s: Dan Mangan
