Sit here and we talk, Sit and talk in the dark, Say we've come to a compromise, Only break each other's hearts, I walk out of your front door, I glance back as I turn the key, You turn off the light on the porch, And I wonder if this is how it's gotta be, Cause it's a long drive home, Down these empty dim moon lit back roads, Cause it's a long drive home, Will I ever get there I don't know I glance down at my speed, I'm doing 105, I drive on without hesitation, I drive on through the night, It's just three months ago, This road didn't seem this long, Just three months ago, I never thought that I'd sing this song, Cause it's a long drive home, Down these empty dim moonlit backroads, Cause it's a long drive home, Will I ever get there I don't know. What does my heart have to say about all this? It doesn't know What if this turns out a great mistake You'll never know Do I love her, should I try to fake? I don't think so. But these are answers that I need to hear Just let it go, I pull into my drive, I wonder where I went wrong, Walk through my door a different man A man who's much more strong, Cause when we started out, I didn't know what love was all about, But now that we are through, I know how to love because of you, It was a long drive home, Trying to rid my mind of all these ghosts, It was a long drive home, With the smell of you still lingering on my clothes, It was a long drive home, What I want now is to be alone, It was a long drive home, Down these empty dim moonlit backroads, Long drive home.
