Headlights

Calm

The key is to be calm

I'm sure that my hands

will settle soon

Just keep them 

locked at ten and two

and carry on

 

I need to carry on...

'cause taking that final look behind me

changes nothing but my mind

 

If I stop now

and turn the other way

I'm only going back for yester-

Only going back for yesterday

 

And it's okay

We're better off apart but that's

the part of me

that voices things I never meant to say

We're like two cars in the night

Your headlights blind me briefly

then you're gone

and we continue on our way

 

Well

I'm not feeling too well

I tried every trick to understand

If I seem lost it's 'cause I am and I need

Help

I need a little help

I've crossed your path so many times

but right now yours just isn't mine

 

The road is clear, a sign as if to say:

It's time you let the past be yester-

Time you let the past be yesterday

 

And it's okay

We're better off apart but that's the part of me

that voices things I never meant to say

We're like two cars in the night

Your headlights blind me briefly

Then you're gone and we continue on our way

 

And when I think it's far enough away

You make me feel like it was yester-

Make me feel like it was yesterday

 

And it's okay

We're better off apart but that's the part of me

that voices things I never meant to say

We're like two cars in the night

Your headlights blind me briefly

then you're gone and we continue on our way

 

And my exit's on the right

The mile markers counting down

the empty minutes of the night

and I drive on...

Letting limits pass me by

As I search my rearview mirror

Not for the dawn

but for the incoming headlights
