Between The Leather And Headlights

lyrics

Alone in a room that's full of people
Nothing on my mind except more sleep
Take my forty dollars and head for home
Ninety miles an hour pass beneath my feet
My eyes are too tired to see the yield signs ahead

The further I go, each town is the same
Space between the leather and headlights is what to blame
You know that game

Driving in a car with only three wheels
Praying that i make it before I fall
Out the door and onto the pavement
Locks give out when you can't handle them all
How far does this road go
Are you sure it'll get me home

The further I go, each town is the same
Space between the leather and headlights is what to blame
You know that game

Spinning wheels quickly turn
Over knowledge you have learned
You can either deal with the bumps and pot holes or let go

Mechanical failure pull it over
Parked on the side with an oil leak
This frame will be dust if it gets any older
Engine wasn't built for this speed
But I'm way too cheap to trade it in
With all the years it'd be a shame to see it end

The further I go, each town is the same
The space between the leather and headlights is what to blame
You know his name
