  • On the way home
    This car hears my confessions
    I think tonight I'll take the long way

    In this weather
    The wind outside is biting
    It's left me feeling tired and exposed

    You've been asking me to bleed
    It seems these kinds of questions
    Come too easy to you now

    Your lack of shame comes naturally
    I should not be surprised
    I should have seen it sooner

    Expect me to apologize
    For things that you've done wrong
    While you're inciting others

    You're owning up to nothing
    And I wish that I was gone
    'Cause you're not going anywhere

    And this damp air
    It's fighting my defroster
    My sighs, they ring victorious and fog this tinted glass

    And it's clouded
    And so is my head
    The hint of these new tears are sharp
    I try to choke them back

    But it's useless
    I'm useless against them
    They are beating me with ease

    On the way home
    This car hears my confessions
    I think tonight I'll take the long way

    Expect me to apologize
    For things that you've done wrong
    While you're inciting others

    You're owning up to nothing
    And I wish that I was gone
    'Cause you're not going anywhere

    On the way home
    This car hears my confessions
    I think tonight I'll take the long way Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER ANDREW CARRABBA
