Counting the Days

Album: Sara Smile (2009)

  • There's a freeway that's drowning in my headlights
    And it's keeping me half awake
    The seams in the blacktop have a pulse so slow and dull
    But they're just spinning my thoughts away

    With every mile I get a little further from you
    But that doesn't make this any easier to do

    To walk away
    From everything I've ever known
    To have to wait
    And hope I'll find another road to you again
    But until then, I'm counting the days

    It wasn't like I never said it
    It wasn't like you never knew
    Sometimes the choice is not leave or stay
    But just to face the truth there in front of you

    I'm not real sure just how far I'll have to go
    But I've finally realized that I don't need to know

    To walk away
    From everything I've ever known
    To have to wait
    And hope I'll find another road to you again

    But until then, I'll find a way
    To hurt a little less, so I can save
    Any forgiveness that is left to try again
    But until, then, I'm counting the days
